Visiting International Scholars
Each year, the College of Education and its faculty graciously host a number of talented visiting international scholars who spend a semester or an entire year with us. These scholars pursue a variety of research interests, often in collaboration with College of Education faculty. The knowledge gained and generated by these scholars and the collaborations benefit our College, Purdue University, each scholar’s home institution and nation. We are privileged that these international visiting scholars have chosen to make the College of Education at Purdue University their home base for their work.
