The vision of the International Student and Scholar Services Office (ISSS) is to have an inclusive and engaged international learning community. One of the ways ISSS helps international students become more active on campus is through the Culture Corps Program. International students can provide unique perspectives and new insights to enrich cross-cultural understanding at the University of Minnesota. The Culture Corps Program provides monetary awards to international students willing to share their experiences.
Culture Corps was created in 1998 by Dr. Mohammed Bari to provide international students the opportunity to share their cultural experiences and their knowledge with the University of Minnesota campus community.
