Our Mission

The Mission of the Office of International Programs is to promote international education, development, programming, and collaboration among faculty and staff at the University of Northern Iowa and help prepare students and graduates to thrive in a diverse global environment.

In addition, we serve to enhance the experience of internationals on campus by assisting them to succeed in their academic goals and social adjustment to campus.

We recognize that intercultural competence for all UNI students, faculty, and staff is important for their knowledge, development and personal growth and is considered a life-long process.
