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.

ISSS advisors and counselors are available to discuss any concerns international students or scholars have. ISSS does not make same day appointments. Learn more about how you can contact ISSS.
