Language Exchange Program

Students from more than 30 countries have joined this free and popular program to promote language learning, cultural understanding and friendship. We partner fluent English speakers who wish to learn another language with international students who want to improve their English. Partners choose when and where you’d like to meet each week. Interested in a language exchange that doesn’t involve English? We can do that too.

Global Mavericks

The Global Mavericks certificate program brings UTA’s diverse student body together to learn about culture, the world, and each other. Participants create their own journey by choosing experiences that fit with their academic major, schedule and interest. Regardless of your path, all participants will form relationships with students from around the world and develop intercultural competencies that will empower them to succeed in a globally diverse 21st century workforce.
