Faculty and Staff

The Padnos International Center (PIC) serves Grand Valley State University students in three primary ways. Firstly, PIC provides advising, orientation, immigration support, programming, and other support for the growing international student population. Secondly, the PIC promotes, advises, and administers study abroad and internship abroad programs for students in over 4,000 locations worldwide. And thirdly, PIC sponsors and co-sponsors on-campus events aimed at internationalizing and educating the campus community.

In addition to these academic services for students, the Padnos International Center is eager to serve faculty and staff in their international endeavors. This section of our website provides an overview of some of the ways that PIC can help you, the faculty and staff of GVSU, to deepen and broaden the internationalization of your work, your teaching, and your research.
