Institute of International Education

About IE

IE’s mission is to help people and organizations leverage the power of international education to thrive in today’s interconnected world. When the Institute of International Education® (IIE) was founded in 1919, it would have been impossible to imagine the world we now inhabit, where international connections are paramount. We believe that when education transcends borders, it opens minds, enabling people to go beyond building connections to solving problems together. Our vision is a peaceful, equitable world enriched by the international exchange of ideas and greater understanding between people and cultures.
