Detailed Job Description

Montana State University invites nominations and applications for the position of Associate Provost of International Programs. We are seeking a visionary leader who will elevate and further develop International Programs at Montana’s land grant institution, while implementing the internationalization goals outlined in our 2012 strategic plan, as we prepare our graduates to address the global grand challenges of the 21st century. The Associate Provost is expected to be a leader within the university, representing the university to external constituents at the state, national and international levels. In addition, the Associate Provost will be responsible for developing, evaluating and approving programs and projects within the Office of International Programs. As the senior international officer, the Associate Provost will provide leadership and management of the Office of International Programs including program planning, development and oversight of an operating budget of $3.3 million ($475,000 in state funding, $2.5 million in designated/restricted gifts and $300,000 in grants.)


Responding to fundamental trends which pull the United States and Montana into the global marketplace and place the United States in daily contact with other nations, Montana State University seeks to bring international education to the core of the academic and cultural life of the campus. The Office of International Programs (OIP) offers a full range of international programs and services to MSU students, faculty, and staff.

The OIP provides quality educational opportunities abroad for MSU students at 240 universities in 50 countries and also offers services and programs which make MSU accessible to capable students from around the world. The OIP is responsible for developing and maintaining international institutional relationships between MSU and selected universities. To this end, MSU has established sister-institutional relationships with over 40 universities and more relationships are under development. In partnership with these institutions, MSU offers student and faculty exchanges, conducts collaborative research activities and provides other cooperative programs. Current sister institutions are located in Australia, Costa Rica, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Northern Ireland, Norway, Republic of Korea, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.

Additionally, the OIP assists faculty to pursue scholarship and teaching at the global level. The OIP provides information and assistance to faculty members wishing to engage in international research, participate in a faculty exchange program, or develop international dimensions to their courses. In addition, the OIP assists departments and offices in obtaining visas and making other arrangements necessary to host visiting scholars from abroad. The OIP also houses the United States Arabic Distance Learning Network.


MSU encourages qualified students from other nations to enroll in its programs on a degree-seeking, non-degree or exchange basis. International students enrich the campus, exposing MSU students to the diverse cultures and traditions of other nations. In order to enable international students to succeed at MSU and to have a positive experience on the campus, the Office of International Programs offers a program of international student advising on cultural adjustment, immigration regulations, academic and personal matters; programs to integrate international students into the campus and the Bozeman community; and instruction in English as a Second Language through the A.C.E. Language Institute.


The Associate Provost of International Programs will report to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, supervise an Office of International Programs staff of approximately 20 and convene and chair the MSU International Programs Advisory Council.
