As the focal point and information center for Creighton’s international activity, the Global Engagement Office (GEO) supports the University's mission by providing learning opportunities and services that foster cross-cultural awareness, facilitate intercultural communications, and enhance knowledge about world cultures and societies.
The GEO carries out its mission through the administration of programs and services that support international students and scholars, learners of English as a second language, study abroad, linkages with international organizations and institutions, the faculty in their efforts to internationalize the curriculum, and administration of the Creighton Global Initiative (CGI).
Moreover, the GEO is Creighton's official link to the U.S. Departments of State and Homeland Security. The authorized GEO staff processes all documentation that facilitates the entry and the maintenance of status of international students and scholars at Creighton University.

The GEO coordinates academic-term, holiday, and short-term homestays for international students who want to experience family life in the United States.
