Bridging Geographical Gaps

International Programs and Education (IPE) advises more than 200 international students, scholars, and their dependents from over 30 countries on matters relating to immigration, academic, social, financial, and personal concerns relevant to daily life in the United States. IPE also develops programs specifically to serve the needs of international students and scholars. See our Events page for more info.

IPE collaborates with other campus offices and student organizations to develop and implement educational and co-curricular programs designed to heighten cultural awareness, appreciation of cultural diversity, and intercultural understanding for all students.
