Vision, Mission and Policy Statements

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 Professional or Educational Experience Policy Statement

Because of the complexities of international travel and the need to be aware of Department of State and CDC Travel Warnings and other pertinent safety information, it is required that all student international educational experiences be registered with and approved by the Office of International Programs. Owing to the desire to give logistical and safety support for all members of the KUMC community, it is also mandated that any faculty, resident or staff member participating in an international professional experience as a representative of KUMC, register with the Office of International Programs in advance of travel.

Inbound Mission Statement

The Office of International Programs strives to provide support and services to international students, scholars, and employees that will enable these individuals to  lawfully  pursue their academic and professional goals at the University of Kansas Medical Center.
