International Education Office: SUNY COIL

Buffalo State College is a member of the SUNY Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) consortia. COIL is a great way to integrate the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in our classrooms and to offer our students diverse perspectives and international experiences right from campus. The SDGs were set up in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and are intended to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.” COIL is also a wonderful foundation for any faculty members who are interested in developing a short-term faculty-led study-abroad experience for students. Our COIL membership provides professional development opportunities for faculty in foundations, elements, and designs for COIL programming. The membership also includes a database of interested faculty members from around the globe and monthly meetings to discuss technology and pedagogy and to connect with like-minded faculty. 

If you are interested in learning more about COIL or short-term faculty-led programming, please contact Melissa Holland, director of international engagement, in the International Education Office, South Wing 430.
