Global Experience Office

The Global Experience Office (GEO) within The Global School at WPI provides risk management, travel education and preparation, and administrative support to students, faculty, and staff participating in WPI-sponsored off-campus travel. This includes the Global Projects Program, faculty-led off-campus residential projects, athletic teams and student organizations traveling internationally, and support for employees who are traveling.

The GEO team strives to ensure that off-campus programs are safe, cost-effective, and accessible to all students while cultivating informed travelers and fostering global and intercultural competency as students engage with local and global communities.
