Involved. Belong. Home.
We love our community. We strive to create leaders that change the world.
Our programs focus on understanding the process of student and scholar visas, benefits, restrictions, orientation, travel, and employment. We want to foster international student leadership and build community. Our goals are to promote cross-cultural understanding throughout the University and create connections and friendships that include partnering with student clubs, organizations, and campus partners.
