Sophia Smith envisioned Smith to be "a perennial blessing to the nation and the world." This philosophy informs the global engagement office in helping each Smith student shape her individual education. Each of you defines what Smith is and how it will provide you with a meaningful education.
A strong future will require well-educated women from many nationalities and socioeconomic backgrounds who are globally educated and prepared to lead. The global engagement office offers programs and experiences in many areas: first-year programs, health and counseling, international students and scholars, multicultural affairs, residential life, student engagement and wellness.
"Women of promise, from communities around the world, hold the solutions for our future."
—Mahoney, M. and M. Schuster. (2010). "Women of Promise, Lives of Distinction: Realizing the Power of Smith in the World"
