For faculty the International Newsroom is a great resource for:

  • multicultural assignments
  • class "field trips"
  • promoting study abroad
  • international students
  • writing assignments, and more!

The International Newsroom aligns with IUPUI's Research, International Service Learning, and Experiential Learning (RISE) Initiative, which is a program to expand student engagement that includes international study experiences to enhance students' understanding of the world and special service learning opportunities. The International Newsroom will support the RISE Initiative and enable students and public patrons to tap into important news sources from across the globe that will connect them with events, create opportunities and foster understanding.

International study is evolving into an essential component of a world-class education. According to a recent study by the Association of American Colleges and Universities, 72% of employers want colleges to put more emphasis on Intercultural Knowledge and Global Issues.
