Suffolk University Ranked Nationally For Its International Initiatives


According to a study published in the November 22, 2002 issue of The Chronicle of Higher Education International, Suffolk University has achieved national status for its various international initiatives.

In the category of U.S. colleges with the largest number of students studying abroad in 2000-2001, Suffolk ranked 14th with a total of 360 students.

Suffolk was ranked 37th in foreign student population among masters institutions. Last year, Suffolk had 685 international students on its Boston campus or 13% of the entire student population.

Over the last decade, Suffolk has transformed itself from a local school in downtown Boston to a university which has a national and international reputation. "It's remarkable how far we've extended our educational outreach," said Marguerite J. Dennis, Suffolk University's Vice President of Enrollment and International Programs. "We not only have students from all over the world attending Suffolk in Boston; we also have students receiving a Suffolk education in various countries around the globe."

The Center for International Education, established in 2000, provides international students with comprehensive services from the time of application to graduation. There are more than 100 Country and Parent Ambassadors all over the world who assist Suffolk with recruitment and international internship opportunities.

Suffolk University has a vibrant, diverse international population. This year, there are nearly 1,000 international students enrolled on the Boston campus, and the Suffolk campuses in Madrid, Spain and Dakar, Senegal in West Africa. Suffolk is the only American university with a campus in West Africa.
