ISSS Staff


Staff

Our staff is professionally trained to provide information and counseling to foreign nationals about academic, immigration, legal, career, financial, personal and family issues, as well as issues of cross-cultural adjustment and professional integration upon returning to home countries.

If you have a question that cannot be addressed in a 15-minute walk-in advising session, stop in Room 190 Humphrey Center or call our Front Desk (612-626-7100) to set up an advising session with one of our advisors or counselors. ISSS does not make same day appointments.
