Historical Note

The Department of International Studies and Programs (I.S.P.) was founded in 1956. Its predecessor units included the Coordinating Committee on Overseas Projects and the International Institute. The on-campus program coordination was carried out by the Foreign Studies Department from 1943 to 1961, but is now carried out by I.S.P. Records of the Foreign Student Advisor and the International Center are also included in this record group. I.S.P administers a variety of overseas projects and on-campus foreign studies centers and programs, as well as other programs and institutes of an international nature, some of which are administered jointly with other campus units.

Scope and Contents note

The collection contains International Studies and Programs records relating to international programs at Michigan State University and at American universities in general. Topics include rural and third-world development, international universities, foreign service, and programs available through MSU. The records contain reports to the Ford Foundation (1961-1970), which was a primary source of funding, as well as annual reports of the unit (1957-1971). Of special interest are a series of lectures by former MSU president John A. Hannah, pertaining to international social concerns. Other materials include brochures about study abroad programs, international student handbooks, as well as a Japan Center of Michigan Universities student handbook circa 2010 and newsletters for 2004-2010.
