International Studies and Programs


A Force for Globalization and Collaboration

International Studies and Programs (ISP) is the hub for international teaching, research, and outreach at Michigan State University. Here students, faculty, and staff members connect to academic programs and centers, worldwide partnerships, nationally recognized study abroad opportunities, services for international students, and a range of international events, activities, and resources that help make MSU a vibrant and diverse intellectual community.

We occupy a special position to serve the entire university, working to mobilize MSU’s research capacity, enhance educational programs, strengthen international experiences, support foreign language instruction, and build international partnerships.


International Studies and Programs seeks to raise $65.8 million in the Empower Extraordinary campaign. We will achieve this goal with a mix of endowment and annual funds.


To date we have raised $70.0 million, but more private support is needed to achieve our full potential and propel this great university forward.
