Supporting a Global Campus
In the News! U.S. citizens from Tyler and our surrounding communities may visit the OIP Passport Acceptance Facility to apply for a U.S. Passport.
The Office of International Programs (OIP) champions UT Tyler’s mission to create graduates who understand and appreciate human diversity and the global nature of the new millennium, and to gain international understanding for participation in a global society. The OIP Team facilitates study abroad opportunities for students and faculty across campus and provides insurance advising, cultural and social programming, and immigration services for UT Tyler international students, students at the Intensive English Language Institute (IELI), and visiting scholars, faculty and their family members. In addition, the OIP facilitates international research and engagement as well as international recruitment and marketing. These services are provided to all undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to all faculty and staff, and support the overall university student retention goals.
The OIP promotes a welcoming and inclusive campus environment for our international students, scholars and visiting faculty from over 58 countries who provide opportunities for cross-cultural interactions on our four campuses, take part in collaborative learning opportunities with UT Tyler Colleges, Centers and Research as well as with middle school students and their teachers at UT Tyler's Innovation Academy and enhance the diversity of our entire community.
Our goal is to provide every UT Tyler student with meaningful and safe opportunities to develop intentional and transformative multicultural and global competencies, and to better serve the East Texas region through our globally competent graduates, strategic international partnerships and multi-disciplinary research collaborations. International programming at UT Tyler aims to provide quality international study abroad opportunities and experiences, assist foreign faculty and students at UT Tyler, and to expand cultural diversity in Tyler and throughout East Texas.
