Center for International Programs

The Center for International Programs (CIP) provides leadership, coordination, strategic planning and administrative support for the internationalization of campus. In cooperation with other University departments and Dayton area organizations, the CIP operates programs and provides services which enhance intercultural education at the University of Dayton. The CIP is part of Academic Affairs and Learning Initiatives, under the Office of the Provost. Our areas include:

Campus Engagement

The office of Campus Engagement facilitates opportunities for U.S. and international students, faculty and staff to learn from one another as a way to increase intercultural competence and awareness of one's own culture. We achieve this through strategic communication campus training and education; on-campus collaborative programming; and experiential learning opportunities including the Global Learning Living Community.

Education Abroad

University study abroad programs including university summer study abroad programs are managed through the Office of Education Abroad. Additional resources are available through partner institutions and affiliate programs for semester and year-long study. The education abroad office offers advising for all students to encourage engagement in educational, research and service experiences abroad.

International Student and Scholar Services

International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) provides students and exchange visitors with immigration advising, workshops, orientation, academic and non-academic advising, as well as social and extracurricular activities. Services include support of international faculty and research scholars and their dependents. The ISSS staff works collaboratively with other departments and organizations to advance the University's commitment to building a global community.

Intensive English Program

The University's English as a Second Language program develops students' English skills in preparation for an undergraduate or graduate program or the work place. Course offerings include writing and grammar, reading and vocabulary, oral communication, listening and speaking.

Partnership and Exchanges

The University's international exchanges and partnerships are managed through the CIP. UD's partnerships with international universities and institutions benefit our students, faculty and staff through education abroad programs, semester and year-long exchange programs, research collaborations and more.
