IIUI And UNCW Partnership

IIUI UNCW Partnership BannerThe University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) and the International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI) are partnering to design and implement a collaborative model of professional development in teaching, research, and community engagement, primarily in Political Science/International Relations and English. The teaching component of the IIUI-UNCW collaborative model expands faculty teaching expertise at both institutions through in-person and virtual workshops, mentoring, and pedagogical collaborations. Our model also supports the bidirectional exchange of IIUI and UNCW graduate students. The IIUI-UNCW research component facilitates faculty exchanges, collaborations, and mentoring to increase individual faculty and departmental research capacities, while the community engagement component fosters student, campus and regional engagement through internships, public lecture series, and community dialogues.
