International and Experiential Education

The mission of International and Experiential Education (IEE) is to nurture the personal, academic, and professional growth of New York Tech’s multicultural student body. IEE offers services to all students, alumni, and visiting scholars, facilitating adjustment to a new school and country. In addition, IEE establishes and strengthens their connections with community partners both on and off campus.

On a day-to-day basis, IEE staff serves approximately 1,400 international students and visiting scholars from nearly 100 countries to help them navigate the regulations governing their stay in the United States. IEE administers these regulations according to the Department of Homeland Security’s guidelines, assists with any questions regarding visas or immigration, and welcomes both international and domestic students to participate in social and cultural events throughout the year.

IEE staff also develops and facilitates an array of experiential learning opportunities—experiences outside the classroom. These experiences make students more attractive to employers, who always want to hire the most qualified candidates. IEE offers a number of ways to get that experience, through internships, volunteering, and service-learning opportunities. By applying classroom learning to real-world settings, IEE works to support students’ professional development and civic engagement beyond the campus environment.
