Developing intercultural perspectives and building international relationships

The Global Friendship Program encourages the Miami University and Oxford communities to connect with people from all over the world to develop new perspectives in the spirit of fellowship and appreciation for cultural difference.

  • Global Buddies connects domestic and international students.
  • Global Neighbors connects international students with Oxford community members and Miami faculty/staff.
  • Global Friendship Days are part of a pre-semester program for first-year international and domestic students to learn from one another and share experiences focused on common interests and differing perspectives.
