Office of International Programs & Services (IPS)

ABOUT US

The Office of International Programs & Services (IPS) provides opportunities for Millersville University students, faculty, staff, and other community members to participate in international education activities. We also serve international students and scholars from around the world. 

IPS offers programs for students wishing to study, work, or volunteer abroad, and provides resources to faculty interested in adding an international component to their teaching or research. Our comprehensive approach is a result of the University's commitment to international education, exchange, and fostering a multicultural campus environment. 

IPS subscribes to the Ethical Principles of NAFSA: Association of International Education, and maintains memberships to ensure that we stay apprised of the most up to date industry standards. 

The IPS staff welcomes all Millersville University students, faculty, visiting scholars, and guests to visit us in Lyle Hall.
