Valparaiso University has entered into a partnership with International Education Programs. A unique asset to IEP is its strategic partnership with Center for International Studies Abroad (CISabroad) to offer additional programs to Valpo students. IEP at Valparaiso University offers traditional semester and summer programs, internship placements, volunteer projects and faculty-led programs to over 30 destinations worldwide.  IEP is on campus in the Office of International Programs to advise on these programs. Students who are interested must be approved by the Valpo Office of International Programs in order to apply for CISabroad programs and to earn credit toward their degree requirements at Valpo.
