Connect With Us
In order to best protect the health of our campus community this Spring, our physical office will be open for very limited hours and services (see below). However, Study Abroad & Global Engagement (SAGE) staff are available to answer your questions, support your program application, guide your financial planning, and help your plans for the future move forward!
Students interested in exploring any aspect of studying, interning, or conducting research abroad while at KU can “drop-in” for virtual advising or book an appointment with us by phone or Zoom/Skype/Teams (virtual chat) through the links below.
We look forward to meeting with you as you develop your study abroad plans!
