International Affairs Committee


The International Affairs Committee advocates on behalf of over 4,000 international graduate and professional students at Penn. In addition,  the committee organizes welcome events for incoming international students, as well as various cultural celebrations throughout the year. The committee works side-by-side with the Equity and Access Committee to support the IDEAL Council, coordinating collaborative events and distributing information about available funding.

Key priorities for the International Affairs Committee are to:

1. Present international students with timely and accurate information about current immigration policies and regulations

2. Provide academic and social support to international students to ensure their success and mental health at Penn

3. Foster stronger cross-cultural relationships between international and American graduate students
