International Student Council (ISC)

The International Student Council provides international students the opportunity to represent the international community at the university and to help improve the international student experience.
The Internaitonal Student Council (ISC) serves as a platform that ensures and enhances communication and cooperation between the international student community, the domestic student community, and university faculty/staff, as well as the local community. 

The ISC sponsors coordinated events that showcase the cultures and lifestyles of the International Community, attempts to educate the ISU community and create awareness about humanitarian issues around the world, provides opportunity for exchange of ideas among constituents and represent constituents before university leaders.

Expectations of Council Members

  • Attend all council meetings (listed to the right). Each meeting will be attended by a campus leader (i.e.: Director of Student Housing or Dean of Students), so it's important to have everyone at each meeting. One excused absence will be allowed. 
  • Be involved in a council sub-committee (Social Events, Academic Success, Cross-Cultural Engagement, Sports & Athletic Events, Community Outreach, Public Relations). This includes some additional meetings (no more than twice a month) and communication with fellow committee members.
  • Be knowledgeable about problems, concerns, and complaints within the international student community. Be prepared to bring up those concerns in meetings and to work with campus leaders who can help to resolve those problems.
  • Attend other campus and community international events as able.
