Supporting a Global Campus

Office of International Programs Announcements 

The Office of International Programs (OIP) leads UT Tyler's international outreach through programming, advising and collaboration, as well as the issuance of visa documents to incoming students. International study and research opportunities are facilitated for current students and faculty through travel study programs and collaborations with universities abroad. The OIP is responsible for institutional reports to Homeland Security and leads student compliance with UT System’s health insurance policies and federal immigration requirements through advising, workshops and publications. Other institutional-level support includes hosting international scholars and visiting delegations, international marketing and recruitment, and ongoing international risk management.

The OIP team promotes a welcoming and inclusive campus environment for our international students, scholars and visiting faculty from over 50 countries, and supports the overall university student retention goals. We provide UT Tyler students with opportunities for cross-cultural interaction (International Fest) and promote collaborative learning opportunities with UT Tyler colleges and centers
