ISSS Training for Staff and Departments


Welcome to our new website section for ISSS's Training for Staff and Departments. We encourage you to explore the website to learn more about the full range of training we offer and ways you can become engaged. If you are looking for the schedule for the ISSS Intercultural Workshop Series for Spring 2017, you can see it here.

International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) offers a variety of training options to help UMN colleges, departments and staff work effectively with international students, scholars, and colleagues. We offer these sessions for all UMN staff periodically throughout the semester, and we will also work with departments to create personalized training tailored to their unique needs. Our trainings range from sessions focusing on specific visa regulations to intercultural skills development and suggestions for advising international students.
