Welcome to the website of International Initiatives! As the world becomes more complex and interconnected, Pomona College is embracing this 21st century reality. We are, in fact, creating a global crossroads in Claremont by broadening and deepening international engagement across the campus community. The College also is expanding the range of international experiences for students by developing new and creative global connections. Established in March 2013, the Office of International Initiatives leads these efforts in close collaboration with faculty, staff, and students.

The Office of International Initiatives supports faculty and staff who plan activities and events that address global issues, including speakers’ series, seminars, study visits, and contacts with a wide range of international organizations. The office also provides to students interested in global affairs and international connections information and advice on opportunities for engagement with such international institutions as United Nations agencies, NGOs, and research institutes. The Office also oversees the Pomona College Model United Nations Program. The College has joined the United Nations Academic Impact Initiative, established by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in 2010. This is a global network of more than 800 colleges and universities committed to the principles of the UN; in addition, constituent colleges and universities will collaborate with the UN through campus events, webcast “Global Classroom” discussions, and guest speaker engagements and conferences.

The Office provides advisory support to Oldenborg Center, the Study Abroad Office and the Career Development Office.

As this website is further developed, you will find news items, information about campus events and activities, links to select international organizations, and a variety of resource materials. In addition, we also encourage you to call, e-mail, or stop by the office, located on the ground floor of Alexander Hall. Welcome!
