find your passion...

IPSL's borders are OPEN! We have moved our global courses ONLINE.
Take the same courses from our international professors, provide indirect service to grassroots organizations, and make global connections virtually until we can all travel again!

Step up, find your calling, mobilize to serve
people and communities in need. 


COVID-19 and our societies’ reactions lay bare longstanding inequities and marginalization we must address. Be part of learning to build a new model of being. How society is currently structured is unsustainable; we need a holistic approach to problems that considers people, animals, and the environment. 


IPSL has always been about connections.  
During this pandemic, we say…. “practice physical distancing but maintain social connection.”

Margaret (Peggy) Pusch

It is with a very heavy heart that we share the news that, Margaret (Peggy) Pusch passed away in late December. Peggy contributed so much to the establishment of the fields of Intercultural Communication and Global Education. Peggy was co-founder and editor of the Intercultural Press and was President of NAFSA. She was the Board Chair of IPSL for many years and was instrumental in shaping the future of the organization and of so many IPSL staff. Her love and support will be cherished forever. 


On behalf of the entire global IPSL family, we would like to offer our most sincere condolences to Peggy’s family ... her husband Lew and their daughter and two sons, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
