Council for International Students and Scholars Hospitality

CISH is a community group that provides a “home away from home” for international students and scholars who come to study in the Lehigh Valley from around the globe. We work with international students and scholars at Lehigh University, and we plan to expand to other local colleges in the future.

CISH volunteers come from around our community to provide support and a sense of good will to our international population. Whether you just want to participate once or would like to be more involved, you can choose the level that works for you. Our volunteers help in many ways:

  • Hosting home-cooked meals
  • Inviting guests to community events
  • Providing temporary housing before or during breaks
  • Providing local transportation
  • Storing personal belongings over summer

To join at any level and get the newsletter highlighting volunteer opportunities, please fill out a brief survey here. However you choose to be involved, CISH is a great way learn about different cultures while giving back to your community!
