International Education & Engagement (IEE) is a resource focused on supporting success by facilitating equitable access to global experiences for students, faculty, staff, and the community. We strive to support and engage cross-cultural understanding through programming, teaching, learning, research, partnerships, and service opportunities.


Our vision is to support UWL's commitment to comprehensive internationalization by working collaboratively to infuse global and diverse perspectives on campus, in the community, and through our international partnerships while creating a greater understanding of people and cultures.
