International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) in International Programs would like to recognize UI staff, faculty, and students who have completed the Building Our Global Community certificate program and those who have received the International Advocate certificate. All of these people have made a commitment to advance and promote internationalization on the UI campus.
The Building Our Global Community series, started in 2004, provides workshops on skills and insights useful to faculty and staff as they seek to educate and serve our international community. Each year several programs on cross-cultural communication and awareness, activities, and country or culture-specific workshops are offered. Participants who attend four workshops plus an introductory session receive a certificate of recognition.
