Partnerships + Agreements

International partnerships support IU’s educational and research missions

International partnerships connect the IU community with educational and research opportunities around the world.

The Office of International Partnerships facilitates opportunities of strategic importance through its relationships with higher education institutions, organizations, and governments at home and abroad. This extensive network expands possibilities for collaboration on faculty research and teaching, study abroad and exchange programs for students, dual degree programs with top-ranked international universities, internships and other professional development activities, and the development of institutions and organizations.
