K-State is currently engaged in many exchange programs with foreign institutions around the globe.

The OIP plays a prominent role in the internationalization of faculty, departments and colleges, student programs, faculty/staff development, curriculum development, and area studies at K-State.

The OIP works with the Colleges International Activities Council (CIAC) and the colleges to identify avenues for international growth and development within the university and community.

International students make up some of both the undergraduate and graduate student body, which gives our university an essential component to make our students globally competent. Our students come from many countries. While international students experience our campus they also provide global perspectives to classroom discussions, expand our research connections, create cultural awareness among our students, and help engage students to experience other countries and cultures.
