Global Initiatives & Programs

Making IUPUI a global university

We prepare our students with global mindsets and skills so they can contribute to our rapidly changing and diverse world.

That means providing access to global learning opportunities for all. Recruiting and supporting students from around the world. Hosting international scholars. Supporting interdisciplinary global research. Advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals. And making international engagement a part the fabric of our campus and curriculum.
