Why Join Us:

The Office of International Programs was established in 1986 to strengthen communication and coordination among K-State's many international programs, to achieve identified strategic planning goals for the university's further internationalization, and to provide a focal point for external international contacts and agreements.

K-State is currently engaged in over 50 exchange programs with foreign institutions around the globe.

The OIP plays a prominent role in the internationalization of faculty, departments and colleges, student programs, faculty/staff development, curriculum development, and area studies at K-State.

The OIP works with the International Activities Council and the colleges to identify avenues for international growth and development within the university and community. The units within the Office of International Programs provide primary support for both incoming international students, faculty and researchers and for students, faculty and researchers going abroad.

K-State's student body is now 9.1 percent international students, which gives our university an essential component to make our students globally competent. Our students come from 103 countries. While international students experience our campus they also provide global perspectives to classroom discussions, expand our research connections, create cultural awareness among our students, and help engage students to experience other countries and cultures.
