International Partnerships and IU Indianapolis

Mutually beneficial strategic international partnerships are center stage in IU Indianapolis’s engagement with the world. Interdisciplinary in nature, these partnerships are critical to tackling today’s great challenges. We recognize the importance of research that is conducted through global collaboration, and the opportunities that arise that help prepare a new generation of students as global citizens. Built on solid communication and trust, our international partnerships are dedicated to making the world a better place.

International partnerships and initiatives provide opportunities for IU Indianapolis faculty, staff, and students to study, teach, conduct research, and actively engage around the world. In alignment with the strategic objectives of Indiana University Bloomington and Indiana University Indianapolis, they enhance our growing global engagement.

Partnering with an International Institution

IU Indianapolis faculty and staff are encouraged to consult with the Office of International Affairs when pursuing international collaborations. We are here to help you deepen international relationships, create synergies across campus, and navigate the IU approval process when necessary. Many collaboration activities may not require a formal partnership agreement.
