The International University of Novi Pazar (Serbian: Интернационални Универзитет у Новом Пазару, romanizedInternacionalni Univerzitet u Novom Pazaru) is a Serbian private university which was founded in 2002 with support of then Prime Minister of Serbia Zoran Đinđić. Upon their request a Muslim minority from Sanjak area was given the right to found their own university. This institution is a Waqf (often translated in English with Foundation), which is legally something between publicly owned and privately owned university.
