OIE Mission Statement

The mission of the Office of International Education (OIE) is to actively promote international and intercultural understanding and to enrich the academic and cultural environment of CU-Boulder by facilitating the exchange of people and ideas.  OIE brings CU to the world and the world to CU.

OIE Vision Statement

The CU-Boulder community (students, faculty and staff) has a broader world view, has a richer understanding of other cultures, and is more tolerant of differences, as a result of the educational experiences offered by the Office of International Education.


The Office of International Education (OIE) at the University of Colorado at Boulder provides broad opportunities for international education for students and faculty. The OIE sponsors study abroad programs for undergraduates wishing to spend part of their academic career abroad, serves as host to foreign students and scholars who come to CU-Boulder, and provides advice and assistance to students, faculty, and staff who are interested in an international dimension to their study, teaching, or research.

More than 1,300 international students and nearly 600 visiting international scholars come to CU-Boulder each year. Approximately one-quarter of our bachelor's degree recipients incorporate a study abroad program into the undergraduate degree.  The campus currently sponsors over 200 study abroad programs in more than 60 countries. CU-Boulder is international!
