The Kirkwood International Programs department works to advance Kirkwood Community College
as a global learning community by serving as a crossroads for faculty, staff and students
from around the world who seek educational opportunities, as well as a resource for
Kirkwood faculty, staff and students seeking educational opportunities in other countries.
International Programs is responsible for international student admission, international student services and advising, study abroad programming and advising, as well as the management of several international grant programs.
They facilitate and support faculty and staff in becoming involved in international partnerships and community. Kirkwood faculty and staff have many opportunities to serve as host and/or mentor families, propose Study Abroad programs, serve as international faculty leaders and assist in short-term visitor programming, to name a few.
Kirkwood also sends over 100 students each year on Study Abroad programs led by Kirkwood faculty and provides student scholarships.
