Friends Without Borders

As the number of international students at the University of Iowa continues to rise, the campus remains committed to providing opportunities to promote interaction with domestic students. A new endeavor for the 2014-2015 academic year is the International Student Advisory Board (ISAB). The 12-student committee will serve as a channel for increasing domestic-international student interactions and improving international students' experiences at the University of Iowa, while functioning as a joint committee of both the graduate and undergraduate student governments.
