The College of International Studies was established in 1996 to coordinate and promote international activities and programs, enhance the international content of the curriculum, and increase the university’s outreach on international matters.

The project included the exterior renovation of the west façade, which is now the front door of the college and houses a 2-story lobby, elevator, and open stairs. A 3-story element was added to the west façade to house the dean’s and staff offices and a quiet study area on the first floor. New faculty offices and small conference and seminar rooms are on the second and third floors.
