The program has grown to support students from 67 countries across five continents since its inception in the summer of 2001 with eight students enrolling in classes in Bethlehem, Pa. The office was founded under the leadership of Dean Roland Yoshida with Dr. Daphne Hobson serving as the first director. The office was developed to formalize all of the international activities that the college had long been participating in throughout its history. 

Our office facilitates enrollment, admissions, and program support for all hybrid degrees and certificates as well as connecting the faculty of the college with a myriad of international organizations.
