About Us

Our Mission

The Office of International Programs (OIP) was established to infuse an international dimension throughout Tuskegee University's programs of instruction, research and extension. The goal of Tuskegee University's participation in international development activities is to develop an effective and responsive international program within the context of the universityís land grant mission. This means:

  • Effective planning and implementation of international projects to maximize benefits to the people of the developing countries;
  • The institutionalization of international dimensions into the teaching, research, extension and public service functions of the University; and
  • Realization of benefits from such participation for Tuskegee University's clientele, the University and the United States.
