Strategic Planning

International planning efforts are expanding IUI’s strong foundation of global engagement

Guided by the IUI strategic plan and international strategic planning, the Office of International Affairs is collaborating with campus stakeholders and community members to strengthen internationalization efforts and building a global campus in a global city. 

Internationalization planning was facilitated through participation in the American Council on Education’s Internationalization Laboratory. The process convened more than 50 faculty, staff, students and community members in four committees from 2012–2014.

We also support IUI schools and units in realizing their own international vision and goals. IUI's strategic plans and reports are available upon request by emailing and stating the specific report or information you are looking to obtain.

The case for internationalization at IUI

Internationalization infuses an international or intercultural dimension into ALL aspects of a university's mission. And it's an important part of the IUI strategic plan. The Case for Internationalization: IUI delves deeper into this concept and explains why internationalization benefits students, staff, faculty, and beyond. It is available upon request by emailing

Study abroad at IUI
