The internationalization of Ana G. MÃ©ndez University Systemâ€™s curriculum is more than just adding new courses or majors to existing programs. The University System has established a multifaceted and interdisciplinary program that is positively impacting students and faculty in Puerto Rico, U.S., and other countries.
Through its internationalization efforts, Ana G. MÃ©ndez University System provides faculty, researchers, and students with the opportunity to learn about other cultures, languages, developing technologies, and global economies by interacting with their counterparts in international universities, institutions, and business organizations. The University System further promotes the interaction of faculty and students by sponsoring conferences with academic and government leaders worldwide.
Through these efforts, Ana G. MÃ©ndez University System is contributing to creating competitive individuals to successfully take on the challenges of a global economy. The internationalization program is also promoting communication between nations, as well as the exchange of information, resources, and knowledge.
With campuses no longer geographically bounded to one area of physical space, through its Center for Telecommunications and Distance Education and satellite campuses in Orlando and Miramar, Ana G. MÃ©ndez University System has made long-distance learning, teaching, and research easily accessible.
