The mission of the Office of International Student Affairs is to aid in the retention and academic success of international students by providing services related to cultural adjustment and sense of belonging. Additionally, we implement strategies to help domestic students develop a global mindset and desire to study abroad.
The office also provides leadership and manages the day-to-day operations of the Global Village, an international living-learning community comprised of both international and domestic students with the goal of advancing mutual cultural exchange. Our vision is to develop global citizens through international awareness and cultural appreciation in order to strive for a more inclusive society.
The Office of International Student Affairs events and activities will follow the Flashes Safe Eight guidelines for Fall 2022. For more information, please visit https://www.kent.edu/coronavirus.
