Welcome to International Programs and Services

IPS seeks to strengthen the global and international dimensions of teaching, learning, research and service at University of the Pacific. The department houses two units, one dedicated to International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) and the other to Education Abroad.

Education Abroad

Pacific is dedicated to providing Pacific students with the highest quality international academic programs and opportunities that allow them to gain the knowledge and develop the skills necessary to become successful and productive members of the global community. In partnership with Pacific campuses, schools, departments, faculty and staff IPS seeks to increase awareness of education abroad opportunities, promote intercultural learning, and advocate for diversity in participants and programs.

International Student and Scholar Services

IPS supports the academic, social, and cultural integration of Pacific's international students and scholars.  Services include:

  • Advising on and facilitating compliance with United States immigration regulations.
  • Conducting orientations and other special programming that help international students and scholars integrate into and adjust to the academic, cultural and social life of Pacific and the United States.
  • Serving as a liaison with United States government agencies, foreign embassies, sponsors and educational foundations that support international students and scholars.
  • Contributing to the internationalization of Pacific by providing opportunities for growth through cross-cultural interactions.

IPS works with international students and scholars from throughout the world to make their stays at Pacific and the United States positive, enriching and fulfilling.
