International Network of Universities (INU)

Founded in 1998, the INU is currently comprised of 10 members that stretch across the world. Most INU members are relatively “young” universities that actively seek international contacts and experiences, create innovative programming and delivery methods, and embrace the internationalization movement.

The INU has endorsed the theme of Global Citizenship as a common element across the teaching and research of its member universities. The glue is an adherence to the concept of educating students to act and to think globally, irrespective of their discipline of study, and giving them the tools to play an active role in creating and maintaining a more humane and sustainable world.

Since 1999 James Madison University has been a member of the INU. As a partner institution, we actively seek international partnerships and experiences, create innovative programming and delivery methods, and embrace the internationalization movement.

The INU activities focus on:

  • Advancing internationalization of member universities
  • Preparing students for lives and careers as global citizens
  • Engaging students and staff in international mobility programs
  • Sharing experiences and best practices
  • Delivering joint teaching and degrees
  • Supporting early-career researchers

In order to realize the above-mentioned activities, the INU has implemented a range of international programs targeting both students and staff members:

Student Seminar for Global Citizenship and Peace 

Henry Fong Award

International Student Conference on Global Citizenship

INU Internships

Staff Shadowing Program 

Seed Money Fund

Researcher Mobility Program
