International Partnerships and IUPUI

Mutually beneficial strategic international partnerships are center stage in IUPUI’s engagement with the world. Interdisciplinary in nature, these partnerships are critical to tackling today’s great challenges. We recognize the importance of research that is conducted through global collaboration, and the opportunities that arise that help prepare a new generation of students as global citizens. Built on solid communication and trust, our international partnerships are dedicated to making the world a better place.

Featured Partnership: Moi University, Kenya

Moi University Staff in 2013

The medical component of our strategic partnership with Moi University in Kenya has been nominated five times for the Nobel Peace Prize for its innovative and holistic approach to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. This collaboration, known as AMPATH, is making substantial headway towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #3 on improving global health and well-being.

International partnerships and initiatives provide opportunities for IUPUI faculty, staff, and students to study, teach, conduct research, and actively engage around the world. In alignment with the strategic objectives of Indiana University and IUPUI, they enhance our growing global engagement.

Partnering with an International Institution

IUPUI faculty and staff are encouraged to consult with the Office of International Affairs when pursuing international collaborations. We are here to help you deepen international relationships, create synergies across campus, and navigate the IU approval process when necessary. Many collaboration activities may not require a formal partnership agreement.
