International Studies

The Center for International Studies is an interdisciplinary academic center which coordinates all international academic activities at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside.

We are connected to each other in more ways and more often than ever before - and there is still so much to learn.
 

  • Serve as a focal point for international education activities at Parkside.
  • Provide interdisciplinary academic programs to all students on campus
  • Support and foster internationalization on campus.
  • Provide an environment conducive to intercultural learning & exchange of ideas.
  • Foster opportunities to develop a global perspective fundamental to full participation in the world.
  • Encourage scholarly activities in response to local, national and global communities.
