The JSU International Program got its start in 1946 in the wake of World War II and the hatred and brutality of that conflict. The founders of the program, Dr. and Mrs. James H. Jones, sought to create a place where people from different countries and cultures could get to know each other, for the Joneses believed that knowledge and love are the best path to a world without war.
What began as an exchange program between Alabama and Paris has evolved into a comprehensive program currently hosting students from 22 different countries within the International House and 52 countries on campus as a whole.
