About ISI

for Current Announcements, click here or scroll down

The International Studies Institute (ISI) is an umbrella organization for the interdisciplinary undergraduate program in International Studies in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of New Mexico. The goal of the Institute is to pursue broad-based initiatives such as coordinating lecture series and conferences, reaching out to secondary schools, and supporting international and interdisciplinary study, research, and outreach programs.

As an institute that serves undergraduates and the associated faculty in International Studies, our primary goal is to provide greater opportunities for the dissemination of knowledge about all parts of the world on the UNM campus and throughout the state.

ISI seeks to attract faculty with international experience, and develop relationships with local, regional, and global communities by supporting faculty and student exchange programs to all parts of the world.
