Global Leaders

Now more than ever, the world needs global leaders.

When you give to IU, you help us prepare thoughtful men and women who will find nuanced solutions to complicated problems, leaders who celebrate difference, compassionate citizens of the world who understand that we are all more connected than ever before.

For generations, IU has been a leader in international education and engagement. And with your help, we can continue to create the kind of global leaders the world needs most. Your gift will foster international experiences by:

  • Supporting overseas study and service
  • Creating global academic programs

Together, we can ensure that IU students are equipped with the global perspectives, insights, and understanding that they need for 21st-century problem solving.

At IU Southeast, Katherine was an accounting and international business major with a Spanish minor. She was also a student-athlete and worked two jobs. Thanks to scholarships like the Jerry E. and Sheila R. Wheat International Study Scholarship, Katherine was able to study abroad—working in schools in Guatemala, and making and distributing water filters in the Dominican Republic. She hopes to spend her career eradicating child labor in locations across the globe.

The world needs more leaders like Katherine. And the Katherines of tomorrow need supporters like you. With your help, we can give them the skills—and the international experience—they need to hit the ground running.
