The International Studies Institute (ISI) is an umbrella organization for the three interdisciplinary undergraduate programs in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of New Mexico-- International Studies, European Studies, and Asian Studies (including the Middle East). The goal of the Institute is to pursue broad-based initiatives involving all three programs, 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 in three majors—International Studies, European Studies, and Asian Studies—and the associated faculty of each program, 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.
