International Student Council (ISC) is dedicated to providing a holistic experience to undergraduate and graduate international students. ISC creates community and promotes diversity amongst the international student body across the University through the organizing of events and other initiatives. Check out ISC events on their Facebook Page.

As part of the Center for Student Life, and in collaboration with the International Student Council and the Office of Global Services, we share the international student perspective with offices across the university to continue building an inclusive and welcoming home away from home.

Attend programs by the International Student Center for ways to connect to the student community.
