The International Internship Program (IIP)—an office within The International Division —identifies, cultivates, and promotes high-quality internship opportunities that:
- advance the professional training of UW-Madison undergraduate students;
- foster global competency; and
- reinforce academic learning through practical application.
As a hub for developing global talent, IIP plays a central role in the internationalization of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and aspires to be a recognized leader in the preparation of the next generation of globally competent citizens. IIP serves the needs of undergraduate students and the wider university community through its collaborative efforts to establish and maintain value-added relationships with key internal partners, international organizations and alumni.
Organizational relationships and international opportunities established through IIP help build the Wisconsin Idea: the notion that education should influence people’s lives beyond the boundaries of the classroom.
