Beginning with a state to state agreement in 1968 between Oregon and Baden-Württemberg, Germany, Oregon University System International Programs was launched as a state-wide initiative built on the common interests of Oregon’s public institutions. One exchange partnership grew to many and in 1995, international internships were added to program offerings. When the university system disbanded in 2016, Oregon State University became the permanent home of study and internship programs. Today, IE3 Global is powered by the resources, staff, and ingenuity of OSU.
We’ve kept our more than 50 years of study abroad and exchange experience, added to it over two decades of success in internships and experiential learning, and are proud to call thousands of students an IE3 program alum. Built for Oregon college students, IE3 Global has grown to include university partners throughout the northwest and beyond.
