The vision of Texas Southern University international programming is to develop an environment to integrate all of its units, both academic and non academic, into a unified global research, action oriented and responsive institution. The University will seek to develop cooperative programs with partner institutions both here and abroad. This will lead to Texas Southern becoming a leader of interdisciplinary knowledge creation and analysis, which fosters global understanding, policy formulation, and implementation.
The mission of Texas Southern University’s international programming is to encourage and promote international communication, collaboration and cooperation through research and practical application of problem identification and issue solving techniques. The University will promote the development of global citizenship among its students and seeks to become a forum for issues of public policy in the international arena. All university units will collaborate to accomplish this goal.

TSU Group Departs for Study Abroad
Texas Southern’s annual study abroad program kicked off on July 4th of this year. A group of eight students and four faculty and staff left for Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. They will spend three weeks in the country based at the University of Dar es Salaam. They will hear lectures by faculty from the University of Dar es Salaam, participate in a workshop at the Department of Fine Arts, visit important historical cites such as Bagamoyo and Zanzibar, and explore health care systems in the country. Students are registered for courses during the Summer II session at TSU during the trip. The group stays in dormitories connected to the University of Dar es Salaam and interacts with students and neighbors regularly. On the trip this year are: Rahquia “Kiki” Carey, Wendy Green, Sonja McDonald-Ross, Jocina Chase, Alex Bracey, Susan Wallace, Sherlette Thompson, and Averi Jackson. The group is led by Leamon Green of the Department of Fine Arts.
