As of July 1, 2021, International Student Services (ISS) and International Faculty and Staff Services (IFSS) have become part of the International Division.
Bringing the expertise of ISS and IFSS into the International Division will provide opportunities for collaboration on a broad scale among colleagues addressing immigration and related issues involving international students, staff and faculty. The move will also allow greater transparency and communication of the complexities associated with immigration services, as well as increased efficiency, education, and support.
“I am pleased to officially welcome colleagues from ISS and IFSS joining the International Division,” said Guido Podestá, vice provost and dean of the International Division. “The colleagues in these areas, under the leadership of Jennifer Taylor, director of IFSS, and Samantha McCabe, director of ISS, provide critical support to the international campus community. I look forward to building on their successes and creating new efficiencies in the services the campus offers.”
Please continue to watch for updates over the coming months as this transition takes place.
In the meantime, the campus community can continue to contact International Student Services and International Faculty and Staff Services as normal for immigration services and support. The additional workload the transition will create for these units will be manageable, but patience will be appreciated.
