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 skills and communication across campus. All UCR students 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 student population.
