The Study Abroad Office Mission
The mission of the IUPUI Study Abroad Office is to enhance all students’ cross-cultural understanding by providing meaningful overseas experiences. We live in a world of interconnected societies, and the need for responsible, global citizens continues to grow. Therefore, it is essential for students across all disciplines, education levels, and personal backgrounds to experience the world beyond the walls of our university and the boundaries of their home country. We strive to meet the individual goals and interests of students by offering a range of study abroad programs that vary by length, language, location, discipline, and pedagogy. These programs challenge students to explore their own values and beliefs while enriching their understanding of others. Particular emphasis is placed on international service learning as a means for students to establish a deep connection with and understanding of their host community.
What We Do
- Work with partners on campus and all over the world to provide overseas experiences that are meaningful and meet students’ needs
- Connect students with the ideal programs for their interests and goals
