Over the course of an academic year, the Office of International Education assists international students and scholars and their families from over 50 countries and helps IUP students pursue education abroad opportunities. The office also liaises with faculty, staff, students, and community members in a number of different ways to further internationalize IUP.

Seeking Community Members for International Friendship Program

If you are a staff or faculty member or know someone in the community who would enjoy connecting with IUP’s international student community, we invite you to join the International Friendship Program. One to two students are paired with a community member, attend a short training virtually, and then are encouraged to meet once a month to talk and share culture and common interests. The program will be held virtually this spring with some limited in-person opportunities.
