The Office of International Programs was created to foster and celebrate international and cross-cultural educational experiences in this global environment among students, faculty and staff. As we make the campus a home away from home to our international students, scholars and faculty, we also encourage our local population to explore the world through exchange, faculty-led, or mission trips. Our goal is to internationalize our community.


Gardner-Webb University is home to culturally diverse students, administrators, and faculty who enrich our community.

GWU continues to grow and it is home to close to 5,000 enrolled undergraduate and graduate students from 37 states in the U.S. and more than 25 countries around the globe. Almost half are from Europe, one quarter are from North America, 15 percent from Latin America, and a total of 11 percent from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
