International Programs & Services


IPS is the bridge for many endeavors, whether it be international exploration for American students led by faculty, service learning initiated by students, internationalizing the curricula, faculty exchanges, or collaborative partnerships with international governments or universities abroad.


IPS excels at providing innovative initiatives, best practices and supportive services for the comprehensive internationalization of all LSCS campuses – students, faculty, administrators and the community.
