Geneseo programs are noteworthy for the eminence of our overseas university partners, the safety of their environments, and the academic excellence of our short programs.  An increasing number of exchange students and faculty come to Geneseo from around the world each year.  Through all these means Geneseo is right at the heart of the world, its students have the ability to experience other cultures by immersion in them, by exposure to individuals from them and from faculty who are constantly learning and sharing their international expertise--essential preparation for the world ahead!
