Message from the Director
Welcome to the U-M International Center (IC), the University of Michigan, and Ann Arbor. It is our hope that you will achieve both your academic and personal goals through the guidance and assistance provided by the IC for international students and scholars, and domestic students. The IC provides advice, information and referrals on matters such as immigration regulations, cultural adjustment, employment, overseas travel and study, volunteer work, and international careers. The IC staff cares deeply about those who come to campus from other countries, and we are equally invested in those who wish to study and work abroad.
As part of our overall mission, the IC advocates for international education as a campus-wide and national priority. Our staff communicates with elected and appointed officials, public and private organizations, and colleagues at other institutions to promote and facilitate international exchange. We provide a voice on proposed federal legislation affecting international educational exchange, and we support and advocate for students and scholars in the U.S. and abroad.
The culture of the IC is shaped by a sincere desire to work as partners with all members of the U-M community to help those we are charged to serve. To learn more about the IC, please explore our web site and do not hesitate to email, call or drop by the IC to obtain information and assistance from the helpful and knowledgeable IC staff.
