Welcome to the International Student Center (ISC)!

A Global Initiatives collaborative platform for student and community development and intercultural engagement.

ISSS is excited to announce the opening of the International Student Center! Our hope is that this space, located in MacMillan Hall 017, will provide a boost in support for the international community who call Miami and Oxford home and help build a more inclusive global community.

For this semester and beyond, the ISC is committed to support students and groups launching programs and events that:

  • share and celebrate diverse expressions of world cultures and peoples.
  • enhance cross-cultural experience and interpersonal communication skills.
  • develop collaborative local/global initiatives toward a shared vision or common purpose.
  • promote a more peaceful and sustainable world.

Our Vision and Mission

The vision of the ISC is to support the international community cross-cultural experience at Miami University, build capacity for an inclusive global community in Oxford, and advance campus internationalization.

The mission of the center is to expand support for international students, providing orientation, resources, and advocacy; and to co-create opportunities of exploration, discovery, reflection and action for the international community through collaborative co-curricular initiatives that build strong intercultural connections.
