We seek to promote mutual understanding through cultural exchange and dialogue while providing services that benefit the future leaders of countries from over 130 different nations around the globe. Because of the global influence of IF, our relationships with associations and affiliations enable us to have a network that connects us with organizations at over 500 universities in America, Asia & Europe.
We believe cultural exchange is essential for a successful world and a successful America. Meaningful dialogue and communication are vital components of a positive experience in America and for success in the academic and professional world.
