International Programs

ILR students participating in an international experience

ILR International Programs promotes ILR's core mission in research, teaching, and extension programming around the world. Guided by our academic committee, we aim to support the integration of international dimensions into teaching and research at ILR by promoting international research and exchange, expanding opportunities for students' international education, developing international conferences, creating publicity for international activities at ILR, and disseminating faculty international research.

At ILR we want to provide our students on campus and in our outreach education with more international and comparative course work to prepare them for careers that will take them abroad either literally or through their professional engagement.
