Connecting Rochester and the World

Since its founding, the University of Rochester has transformed the city, the region, the nation, and the world.

The University is an increasingly global institution. We draw students from all over the world, compete internationally for the most talented faculty, and establish international research partnerships.

The needs of a global society are becoming more complex, and the demands on a research university such as Rochester are increasingly urgent. With the aid of the Office for Global Engagement, Rochester can meet those demands.
