Opportunities for Engagement

What do you want to do?

There are many things UMN staff can do to engage international students, scholars, and colleagues. Whether it is small acts (like reading and watching videos to learn more about international students and scholars and the visa regulations they must follow) or working with ISSS to change your department’s procedures, any action you take can improve your interactions with international students and scholars.

UMN staff engage with international students on a daily basis, and staff seek to learn about ways to develop the skills and knowledge needed for effective interactions and services. ISSS has responded by creating a continuum of engagement so University of Minnesota staff and faculty can get involved at various levels of intensity.
