International Programs Strategic Planning Process

International Programs is refreshing its existing strategic plan to align with the University-wide strategic planning process set in motion by Provost Fuentes. International Programs functions as a catalyst for campus internationalization and a hub for international services and activities.

An important step in the planning process is to solicit stakeholder feedback to help formulate goals in the strategic plan. 

Survey:

All members of the University of Iowa campus community were invited to complete a brief survey. The survey was closed on December 7, 2019. If you were unable to complete the survey and would like to provide feedback, feel free to contact any member of our committee, listed below.
