Global engagement is for all

It is for our students, our faculty, our state, our nation, and our world. IU seeks to train the next generation of industry, government, academic, and civil society leaders; to generate research and knowledge that can help solve major global challenges; and to work in close collaboration with partners both locally and globally to improve our society. The Office of the Vice President for International Affairs promotes global engagement at IU across all aspects of the university’s mission.

Almost two centuries of global commitment

IU has long believed in a commitment to an international dimension of education. As we celebrate IU's 200th birthday in 2019-2020, we also celebrate nearly 200 years of global engagement.
