Overview of the ISC
The International Student Center (ISC) is a focal point for student activities and programs of a global, cultural, educational and social nature, and is a gathering place for Seattle University’s international and domestic students and student organizations.
The ISC is committed to supporting the academic and Jesuit mission of Seattle University and the strategic priority of Global Engagement by working closely with campus partners in supporting over 700 international students from 63 countries around the world. Furthermore, the Center staff creates opportunities for all SU students to learn about each other’s culture and geographic region and identity.
The ISC plans large-scale events like International Education Week and the International Dinner while providing assistance to our international students in all matters pertaining to immigration, visa status, document certification, employment authorization and more.
Our office also offers cultural adjustment and academic assistance to our international students and the Center encourages all domestic students to get actively involved in the I-Buddy Program, International Dinner Series, and in the various international clubs at SU to ensure they are globally engaging during their SU experience.
The International Student Center at Seattle University both celebrates and promotes safe and healthy community life for people of all races, religions, national origins, socio-economic classes, gender identities and expressions, sexual orientations, physical and learning abilities, and ages by modeling behavior and articulating expectations that we live and work together in one community, bound together by our commitment to learning and respect for one another. Excellence and diversity at Seattle University are inextricably tied. We have a deep understanding of and commitment to the fact that to be an excellent division and an excellent university we must be diverse in all aspects of our work.
