As Vice-Provost for Global Affairs and Chief International Officer at KSU, I invite you to join KSU’s Division of Global Affairs, affiliated KSU faculty and KSU’s partners throughout the University System of Georgia as we work to build new opportunities for Education Abroad in Montepulciano, Italy.

Building on highly successful study abroad programs in Montepulciano, KSU is working with departments, colleges, and universities across the State of Georgia to create innovative education abroad opportunities for our students and for the communities we serve. These new opportunities will include traditional faculty-led study abroad programs, student internships with Italian businesses, and symposia and leadership training workshops for business and civic leaders from the State of Georgia and Italy.

Whether you are student or a faculty member, I invite you to explore our existing programs.

If you represent an institution, I encourage you to consider joining our consortium of schools. Current members include Georgia Southern University, Georgia College and State University, Valdosta State University, and Georgia Highlands, as well as Kennesaw State University.

If you are an alumnus of one of our programs or would like to donate to our scholarship fund, I invite you to become a “Friend of Montepulciano.”

Please, get involved and join us in Italy!
