IU Trustees Approve School Of International Studies

Indiana University approved Friday the construction of an international student center at its trustees meeting.

Indiana University Board of Trustees gave its approval Friday to create a new school of international studies.

At the trustees meeting, IU President Michael McRobbie said the new school of Global and International Studies would put the university at the top. The School will combine about 30 programs largely from the college of arts and sciences.

“The new school will enable us to provide all kinds of educational opportunities to our students to our undergraduates, graduate students and provide wonderful opportunities for research,” McRobbie says. “And I see it all as being part of the international dimension of Indiana University.”

The new school will offer a number of bachelor and master’s degree tracks as well as doctoral degrees. Plans include the construction of a new building next to the Wells Library near the Radio and Television building.

McRobbie says the university is working to identify capital project funds for the new facility. IU plans to break ground spring 2013.
