Your affiliation with the University of South Alabama does not end with graduation! A major goal of Global USA is to reach out and reconnect with our international alumni and friends. Whether you are a former international student, prior domestic study abroad student, previous J-scholar, or just someone interested in international education, please contact us with your thoughts, ideas, and memories of your time spent on-campus. We also want to know what you have been up to since you graduated!

We cordially invite all USA international alumni in-country to come and share their stories and experiences! We would welcome the assistance of alums in these country visits.  It would also make a great opportunity for the country network to have an alumni event.

Giving Opportunities

Global USA is participating in the “Upward and Onward” capital campaign for the University. Upward & Onward is a $150 million fundraising campaign with a stated goal to “elevate and accelerate every aspect of the University of South Alabama — education, research, service, science, health care, economic development, athletics, and the arts and humanities.”

By strengthening the connections and collaborations between USA and the rest of the world, Global USA can help to broaden our students’ perspectives and understanding of other cultures, expand the ability of our faculty to connect and engage with their peers around the globe, and create new opportunities for our entire community to participate in our global society.

Giving opportunities to enhance global engagement at the University of South Alabama are available in the following areas:

Study Abroad Programs and Scholarships

Through greater access to exchanges and programs with international universities, our students gain firsthand knowledge and understanding of other environments and cultures.

International Student Support and Scholarships

Increasing the number of international students attending USA adds global diversity to our campus and serves to enhance our students’ understanding of the world and other cultures.

International Travel Support

Providing students and faculty with greater access for travel to and from other nations significantly enhances their understanding of other cultures.

Multicultural Programming and Events

Multicultural activities show our students how to engage with and learn from others unlike themselves. As students explore their own cultures and histories, to be successful they must also explore the culture and histories
of others.

We are very fortunate to have Ms. Aimee Meyers as our development officer. She would be very pleased to discuss your interest in giving back to the university, and can provide information on different giving opportunities.
