When Should I Contact Global Support?

Conducting a University activity outside of New York, whether it is research, short trips (J-term or spring break), exchange programs or study-away programs, may present obstacles as a result of U.S. or local business practices and/or legal requirements. Countries and local jurisdictions each have their own set of rules and regulations, and it can be challenging, if not impossible, to be knowledgeable and current on the rules and regulations of the many countries and jurisdictions where the University operates.

How Global Support Can Help?

We will help you identify important issues relating to your activity, obtain information about these issues, engage the appropriate University administrative departments and functional experts, and address these issues to insure your activity can be carried out in line with your expectations and academic mission.

The University maintains functional experts in a range of administrative areas to provide you with technical advice and guidance. Because there are often changes to local country rules and regulations, these University experts, have relationships with third party local country experts, who they at times seek for advice and guidance. Allowing the University functional experts to remain current on the best local country experts ensures you and the University get the best advice at the best price.
