As a program sponsor IUPUI is able to bring professors, research scholars, short term scholars, specialists and student interns from around the world to engage in educational activities. J1 exchange visitors come to IUPUI on this program to help the University meet its teaching, research and service mission.
The OIA International Scholar Advising team assists IUPUI schools in bringing international professors, researchers, staff and visitors for teaching, research, lectures or conferences. Each year, approximately 600 international scholars and accompanying family members representing over 50 countries are affiliated with the IUPUI community and engaged in research and teaching activities in more than 10 IUPUI schools.
