Office of International Programs
Supporting a Global Campus
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, faculty and staff across campus and provides insurance advising, cultural and social programming, and immigration services for UT Tyler international students, students attending the Intensive English Language Institute (IELI), and visiting scholars, faculty and their family members. In addition, the OIP facilitates opportunities for international research and engagement as well as assists departments across campus with international recruitment and marketing initiatives. OIP 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 68 countries. We provide UT Tyler students with opportunities for cross-cultural interactions, promote collaborative learning opportunities with UT Tyler Colleges and Centers, as well as coordinate international programming for middle school students and their teachers at UT Tyler's Innovation Academy and other Tyler area K-12 schools.
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.
