Mission

The mission of the Office of Overseas Study is to promote study abroad by Indiana University students through participation in quality programs in a wide range of disciplines.

The purpose is to enhance international awareness and understanding and enrich curricula on every campus of the university, as well as to expand educational opportunities abroad for students from diverse backgrounds.

As the most effective and dramatic experience by which students can achieve international and intercultural learning, study abroad will contribute significantly to careers in all fields of specialization and should be an integral part of an education at Indiana University.

I gained an enhanced view of the world. I was forced to look at American problems from an international perspective.”
