Global Engagement


Article on Summer 2012 Programs Abroad

The Office of Global Engagement provides opportunities for cultural and educational exchange. The University of Texas at Brownsville (UTB) welcomes students and faculty from other countries to our university community. Likewise, we offer study abroad opportunities for UTB students.

UTB offers a wide range of programs at all levels: certificate, associate, bachelor's, and graduate.  UTB educates more than 17,000 students at its main campus in Brownsville, Texas (the southern-most point of Texas). The campus boasts a semitropical climate, located just 20 miles from the popular beaches of South Padre Island. Set amid palm trees and resacas (oxbow lakes), UTB is a 380-acre campus that originally housed historic Fort Brown.


The University of Texas at Brownsville has been authorized by the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) to enroll nonimmigrant alien students.



There is no greater exchange than the sharing of ideas and cultures.
