International Scholars at UCR

UCR is home to world-class faculty whose innovative research enriches California's bright future. We strive to infuse a global dimension into all areas of teaching, research, and engagement.

The International Students and Scholars office supports and promotes the success, wellness and personal growth of the international students and scholars through expert advising, intercultural programming, and advocacy.

We create a safe and welcoming environment that respects cultural diversity and fosters intercultural communication across campus. All UCR scholars are welcome to get involved with our intercultural programs! We are also happy to assist faculty and staff who are exploring ways to support our growing international population.
