Our Mission

Funded by the U.S. Department of Education, the Institute for Regional and International Studies National Resource Center (IRIS NRC) supports and enhances international and global awareness and inspires informed thinking about the complexities of our world.

We provide resources and expertise to K-12 teachers and students, post-secondary educators and students, and the community at large. Through our outreach, the IRIS NRC is working to put the Wisconsin Idea into action by offering cross-regional programming.
