IUPUI's program promoting international outreach through building strong, lasting academic affiliation arrangements with universities around the world was the recipient of the 2009 Heiskell Award for Innovation in International Education and the 2011 Senator Paul Simon Award for Comprehensive Internationalization.
Former IUPUI Associate Vice Chancellor Susan Sutton's vision for strategic partnerships is outlined in "Partnerships as a Driving Force in Campus Internationalization."
Through the involvement of its staff, students, and faculty, IUPUI has linkages with partner institutions in over 70 countries worldwide. Existing affiliation agreements are compiled in the university-wide Register of International Affiliations, which can be viewed on the web at http://webdb.iu.edu/InternationalPrograms/scripts/ria/registerhome3.cfm
Establishing New Partnerships and Affiliations
Initiation and promotion of new agreements by schools, faculty members, and administrators is encouraged and supported. The Office of International Affairs has staff members who look forward to meeting with you to discuss any questions that might arise.
