The Office of Global Engagement (OGE) promotes international diversity, fosters global understanding and awareness, and advances internationalization efforts throughout the UNMC community.  

The OGE is currently located on the 2nd floor of the Williams Science Hall building.

The UNMC Office of Global Engagements has merged together the following former units engaged in international activities and services:  

  • Asia Pacific Rim Development Program (APRDP) developed and managed partnerships in education, research, and clinical services between UNMC and China.
  • International Business (formerly UNeMEd International) developed international business opportunities in collaboration with UNMC Colleges and Nebraska Medicine. 
  • The International Health and Medical Education (IHME) supported international partnership development, provided visa sponsorship expertise and services for students, international visitors and clinical observers, and managed education abroad programs.
