At the Miller Institute for Global Education, we prepare students to become leaders ready for the global stage. Whether you are an international student settling in a new country, or a domestic student looking to broaden your horizons through study abroad or other international experiences, the Miller Institute provides the services you need. 

Created in February 2022, thanks to the generosity of Pete and Cathy Miller, the Miller Institute builds on Brenau’s long tradition of international partnerships and provides international experiences for as many Brenau students as possible. In addition to serving Brenau’s international students and helping them adjust to life in the United States, the Miller Institute facilitates study abroad programs and creates programming that promotes cultural exchange and brings a slice of other cultures to Brenau.

Massimo Bellew
My decision was brave. I want to say that about myself because it’s not easy to throw yourself in another country and another culture. What I want to tell people who are about to start college, is do it. You might have a more interesting life than if you stay in your hometown for the rest of your life.

These four-and-a-half years, they have helped me so much personally and professionally. I’ve learned so much from the people I’ve met, the faculty and staff, the tennis team. Even though I don’t have family there, the support they’ve given me has been everything.
Xu Lilac Kanjun
I would tell international students to see the difference between our different cultures. You’ll study a lot of things. You’ll have a lot of experience. It’s helpful for you. I really love to live here.

Try to make as many local friends as possible, that way you get the best of both worlds. You have your friends from home and you have your local friends.
