Established in 2011, Global Support Services (GSS) provides operational expertise, assistance, and services to support international projects and travelers across the University. We partner with every School and Central Administration department to simplify business processes and flexibly address risks, enabling faculty, students, and staff to work effectively overseas. While other offices handle U.S. regulations, our focus is on the impacts of foreign regulations, business practices, and environments.

GSS has a cross-functional scope, covering finance, HR, imports and exports, IT, real estate, safety and security, taxes, and visas. We welcome feedback on other areas of need for international projects.

For questions, comments or more information please contact us.
