Mason Staff Exchange Program

The Office of Global Strategy (GO), in coordination with the Staff Senate, is pleased to announce an initiative that supports Mason’s global mission and enhances professional development opportunities for its staff.  Mason’s staff members play a vital role in supporting international initiatives across the campus. GO has created an international professional development exchange experience for staff that will enhance global awareness, encourage cross-cultural perspectives, and broaden professional expertise through direct in-service experience in Spain and the Mason Songdo Campus in Korea, or other designated partners.

Mason will reciprocate by hosting a partner-institution professional. Applicants will apply for one of these two opportunities, and the Office of Global Strategies Staff Exchange committee will choose the final award recipients. Award location of each recipient is decided by the Global Staff Exchange committee.
