There are over 120 faculty members from every UI college who are formally affiliated with International Programs (IP). There are another several hundred whose research and teaching are significantly international in nature. You will find a great deal of intellectual support and friendship among this group. I encourage you to explore these pages to get a sense of the resources we make available to faculty. Among many other activities, IP is the campus hub for study abroad; we house nine internationally-focused academic centers and programs; our grants coordinator provides assistance to faculty pursuing support for their global research and/or teaching; and we welcome international students and scholars to campus and to life in Iowa City.

If you’re interested in becoming formally affiliated with IP, please contact me, Dean Downing Thomas, at I would be very happy to talk with you about how IP can be a resource to you and how your involvement with IP can help advance the university’s internationalization goals.
