Go Global with Study Abroad

The College of Design offers a variety of international study experiences throughout the world. The college's flagship Rome Program allows you to study for a semester or a summer in your chosen major while you take classes that are fully integrated with the ISU curriculum. We also offer short-term study abroad and exchange opportunities in locations around the world.

CISI Insurance
All students participating in study abroad and exchange programs and the faculty members who lead students abroad will be covered by CISI, an international health insurance and emergency services plan. Participants will be automatically enrolled in CISI prior to departure and will receive insurance materials via email.

CISI insurance also is available to faculty and staff traveling internationally on university business, and it is centrally funded for this purpose. Enrollment in this case is not automatic; please contact Mark Chidister for assistance at least three weeks prior to departure.

Faculty Resources
Faculty interested in leading study abroad programs or inviting a visiting international scholar can find information here.
