For Undergraduate Students
The Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies is a place for undergraduates to learn, discover international opportunities, make global connections, and grow as leaders and citizens of the world.
Connect with us. You’ll find the community and support you need.
Welcome to the Einaudi Center
We're made up of eight regional and thematic programs that specialize in every region of the world. Whether you want to go abroad, complete a minor, study a language, or get involved in global research, you'll find a supportive network at the Einaudi Center.
Stop in to see us when you’re on campus! We’re on the ground floor of Uris Hall behind Rusty’s Café.
Explore Academic Opportunities
International opportunities fit seamlessly into your academic path. Whether you're interested in a global minor, learning a language, conducting research, or going abroad—the Einaudi Center is here for you.
Every year, undergraduate global scholars learn to engage with a new global issue. This spring, a cohort of undergraduates are thinking critically about global freedom of expression as part of Cornell's theme year.
