Council for International Teaching & Research

The Council for International Teaching and Research serves to enhance Princeton’s mission of providing outstanding educational opportunities on campus while extending its strengths abroad through learning partnerships with peer institutions in other countries. Created in 2008 in response to the President’s Advisory Committee on Internationalization, the council is charged with managing resources and investing them in exciting, effective and meaningful international partnerships. 

The council facilitates the efforts of departments, schools, centers and programs to participate in exchanges of students and scholars with institutions around the world. Through networks and connections the council promotes, Princeton’s international engagements can evolve and adapt to the ever-shifting priorities and advances in teaching and research.

Together with the Office of Vice Provost for International Affairs and Operations, the council oversees the following initiatives to promote Princeton’s international mission:

the Global Collaborative Networks Grant

the Global Scholars Program

the Strategic Partnership Grants and Research Partnership Grants
