Guide to the International Studies Center Records, 1952-1957

Abstract

The Institute Studies Center (ISC) sponsored programs in international education. From 1952-1957, Duke was a host institution for the IIE's INternational Studies Center. This was a summer orientation program for foreign students sponsored by the US State Department. For several weeks during the summer, contracted schools hosted students coming to study in the US and introduced them to American life. The ISC should not be confused with the Duke University Center for International Studies.

Materials in the collection include administrative records, correspondence, reports, and black and white photographs of international students.
