Faculty and visiting scholars are at the heart of IU's international efforts

Hundreds of IU faculty members are globally engaged; more than 350 work on global and international issues at IU Bloomington alone. And each year IU welcomes more than 1,100 international scholars from all over the world.

OVPIA supports faculty research and teaching through partnerships with institutions of higher education overseas, exchange programs, grants, services to international scholars and their families, support for developing study abroad programs, and tools for navigating the policies and procedures governing international activities.
