Center for the Study of Global Change:

Housed in the same building as OID, the Center for the Study of Global Change has embraced three major challenges: to contribute to the comprehensive internationalization of Indiana University; to promote wider analysis and innovative thinking about global issues by extending the intellectual reach of Indiana University regionally, nationally, and internationally; and to create a supportive environment for innovations in teaching, learning, and research in global studies.

Committee on Institutional Cooperation:

The Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC), established in 1958, is an academic consortium of thirteen major teaching and research universities: University of Chicago, University of Illinois, Indiana University, University of Iowa, University of Michigan, Michigan State University, University of Minnesota, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Northwestern University, Ohio State University, Pennsylvania State University, Purdue University, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Collectively, these universities offer many of the most highly regarded graduate programs in the United States.

CIC’s programs and activities extend to all aspects of university activity including international training and development. The CIC is led by the chief academic officers of the CIC institutions who meet three times annually to establish CIC guidelines and procedures, to discuss proposed initiatives, to evaluate existing programs, and to address collective concerns and policy issues common to these institutions.

Indiana University collaborates with its partners in CIC in the conduct of overseas training and development activities. Assisting change where it is requested and encouraging it when it is warranted, the Committee has been able to take risks its members might not have attempted alone. By designing and implementing model programs that can be applied and adapted to the needs and circumstances of individual universities, the CIC continues to bring together the combined force and resources of each for the benefit of all.

The Indiana Consortium for International Programs:

The Indiana Consortium for International Programs (ICIP) is a group of 22 colleges and universities in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and Illinois devoted to the development of the international dimension of its member institutions.

ICIP works to improve faculty competence, encourage greater student achievement and awareness, develop curriculum, and provide services to assist member institutions in their individual international programs.
