A division of the Office of Global Strategies, International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) supports the academic mission of the University by promoting international educational exchange within the University, to federal agencies and to the world. ISSS seeks to:

  1. Ensure university compliance with applicable immigration-related regulations while facilitating the legal entry and transition of foreign students and scholars.
  2. Advocate on behalf of the foreign students and scholars both within the university and to federal regulatory agencies to ensure that they are afforded every opportunity to complete their educational objectives.
  3. Provide opportunities for intercultural education and exchange by providing educational and cultural programs that foster greater understanding and appreciation for other cultures and traditions.
