ISS also provides programs and workshops for all international students and their family members to help ease adjustment to this new cultural, educational, and social environment.
Another major function of the ISS office is to assist international students and their families in maintaining their non-immigrant visa status and to inform them of all the programs and services available. In addition, ISS collaborates with other student service offices and academic department/programs to design and provide international education programs for all members of the university community in order to advance the university strategic goal of internationalizing the campus.
