The Office of International Programs and Services at ISU is committed to facilitating the research, travel, events and activities that support and promote the transformation of our respective constituencies into successful global citizens.
Fundamentally, IPS serves as an enabler for campus globalization efforts, working with other staff elements to either lead efforts toward this end or support the efforts of other staff activities.
IPS also works with several key constituencies both on campus and in the community to promote a broader global perspective and expand engagement. Specifically, we work with students, faculty, staff, and members of the community by facilitating opportunities to:
Create and provide various study abroad models so students can avail themselves of opportunities to visit other countries and learn about new cultures.
Foster a supportive and nurturing atmosphere for the University’s population of international students.
Encourage and facilitate interaction between our domestic and international students to ensure broader understanding and tolerance.
Facilitate civic engagement by cooperating with various community groups to help bring international programming to Indiana communities. (1)
