Welcome to ORIAS

The Office of Resources for International and Area Studies (ORIAS) exists to help k-12 and community college educators improve their understanding of global issues, expand their knowledge of World History, and integrate international topics into courses across disciplines.

ORIAS offers free programs for teachers year-round and welcomes requests from individual educators seeking to continue their own learning about the world.
