International Programs Vision
In an interdependent world, International Programs believes it is essential for students, faculty and staff to have the opportunity to become personally and intellectually familiar with the people, ideas and customs of other nations. Such interaction not only promotes a universal perspective and intellectual growth, but it also contributes to the cultural and economic well-being of the university, the state and the nation.
Education Abroad Mission
The Office of International Programs is committed to fostering and assisting with the international educational experiences of KUMC students, faculty and staff. The goal of the Office of International Programs is to support and ensure the safety and success of all international travel experiences.
International Travel/Education Abroad Policy Statement
