International engagement is a key focus of the IU School of Education. Our faculty and students are engaged in international research and scholarship across the globe. Our international academic partnerships with peer institutions around the world are an important means of academic enrichment and exchange.
A recipient of numerous awards recognizing excellence in study abroad, the award-winning Global Gateway for Teachers Program, provides opportunities for IU pre-service teachers to engage in cross-cultural immersion by completing their student teaching in 18 different host countries around the world.
Our international activities matter because they encourage Hoosiers to become globally aware citizens, build pathways to peace and mutual understanding, promote the power of education to facilitate development, and strengthen IU's position as a leader in international education.
