Case Western Reserve faculty members use their expertise to lead short-term study abroad programs every year that provide a  guided international education experience for students and an opportunity to earn three credit hours. 

These courses feature various topics and destinations around the world, offering a variety of options for students to expand their worldview. 

They are very popular options for our students, as approximately 59% of our undergraduates who study abroad do so on a faculty-led program.

Many of Case Western Reserve's international collaborations begin with a faculty member's interest in research and/or exchange opportunities with an institution abroad.

The Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence is dedicated to exploring ethical issues from a global perspective, to nurturing international awareness and understanding of our common humanity through the study, teaching and practice of ethics, and to the pursuit of excellence in all human endeavors.

The center is charged with creating internationally recognized programs and initiatives devoted to ethical inquiry in both its practical and theoretical aspects, and to facilitating the development of future leaders who will, in the words of Dr. Inamori, "serve humankind through ethical deeds rather than actions based on self-interest and selfish desires."

Every year, the Inamori Ethics Prize honors outstanding international ethical leaders whose actions and influence have greatly improved the condition of humankind.

The International Studies Program in the College of Arts and Sciences helps Case Western Reserve students develop expertise in a region of the world, including one of its languages, and in a transnational topic. They also become familiar with a variety of international issues and frameworks. 

The program also features a directory of university faculty teaching and conducting research on international topics
