About Us

Intercultural Education Network 

The Intercultural Education Network (IEN) is a team of campus experts who provide educational and developmental opportunities, including those with intercultural themes, to administrators, faculty, support staff and students at Michigan State University. Created and sponsored by the Office for Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives, IEN is a strategic partnership that is guided by and seeks to insure that the University's fundamental core values of quality, inclusiveness and connectivity are achieved. Its goals are to:

  1. Enhance the student, faculty and staff experience through intercultural education
  2. Enhance collaborations and efficiency
  3. Facilitate a strong campus community that is characterized by respect for and civility toward one another


The information that is provided at this website is intended to inform the community about the variety of educational opportunities that are offered throughout the academic year and to welcome their participation in them. 

IEN embraces the opportunity to facilitate learning among the campus community and invites the community to be open to a full spectrum of experiences, viewpoints and intellectual approaches that enrich our conversations and benefits everyone as it challenges us to grow and think differently.
