Creating Opportunity and Excellence Worldwide

The International University Alliance (IUA), sponsored by Shorelight Education, is a non-profit union of internationally recognized tier-one U.S. universities that collectively advances the distinctiveness and desirability of a U.S. higher education as represented by its member institutions. It works collectively to advocate for and reduce unnecessary obstacles to international student access and to advance student success in its member institutions and beyond.
