International Operations (IO) supports the University of Maryland, Baltimore community to engage internationally in education, research, and service.

Through the Global Hub, International Operations provides specialized services to UMB units in support of international travel, safety and security, procurement, finance, human resources, compliance, and other operational areas. As partners in the Global Hub, International Operations and the Center for Global Engagement (CGE) work together to ensure seamless support of UMB’s global activities.

International Operations sets UMB standards for international operations and oversees operational compliance. Across all of its work, International Operations facilitates and promotes robust risk management.

International Operations activates the Maryland Global Initiatives Corporation (MGIC), a UMB affiliate charged with supporting UMB's international activities and projects, when MGIC’s specialized engagement is necessary, including when a sustained international presence is required in the form of dedicated personnel, physical office space, a bank account, or similar infrastructure outside the US.

International Operations is here to serve you! Not sure whom to talk to, but have ideas about international activities you'd like to undertake?
