Office of International Education

Overview: What We Do.

Lyon College has a long and proud history of prioritizing and supporting international education. It is the mission of the International Education Office to broaden the cultural perspectives of Lyon students by introducing them to the world beyond the United States. The means by which we hope to accomplish this mission is through the creation and support of study abroad opportunities which are actively engaging, accessible, and transformative. Our priorities in designing and implementing study abroad programs are academic rigor and maximum exposure of participants to the people and cultures of their host countries.

At present International Education at Lyon College consists of two components, study abroad and international student recruitment.
