In 1968, the University Center for International Studies (UCIS) was created as the University of Pittsburgh’s encompassing framework for all its multidisciplinary international programs. The design for UCIS was carefully thought out to promote the integration and synthesis of international knowledge, not its splintering into disciplinary islands. When UCIS was created, this design was unique. By today it has been emulated by many research universities and the University of Pittsburgh is recognized as a leading institution in international scholarship and education worldwide.
