What We Do

We educate international students and scholars on how to maintain their immigration status, we advise faculty, staff and departments on what is required to host international students/scholars, and we ensure that the University is in compliance with immigration regulations.

We strive to be well connected to other offices and departments on campus in order to support the entire experience of our international students and scholars.

We provide intentional programming designed to bolster the professional and personal development of our international community. We also provide an avenue for our represented countries and cultures to share and engage with the greater campus community.

We continually advocate on behalf of our students and scholars regarding immigration, academic, and personal matters to ensure that their voices are heard within the Lehigh community and beyond.

We aim to facilitate ways for our international students and scholars to engage beyond the Lehigh campus.

We empower Lehigh's international community to take ownership of their immigration status, and academic and professional goals.
