Become an IC Member

Becoming an International Committee member is one of the most enjoyable things you will ever do as a student. It’s a fulfilling way to help the student community, as an opportunity to make an impact on international student life, shape their stay on campus for the better, and create lifelong friendships.

As an IC member, your role is to support international students through specific programs organized by the International Relations Office.

5 reasons to join the IC

 

  • Time Commitment

    International Committee members must be available to work during August, September, and January of the same academic year for International Welcome Days activities. This is the busiest period of work and members will be expected to commit to multiple full days of work during these weeks.

    For the rest of the year, hours are variable depending on the work required and on your availability. Current members work a few hours per month on average. Occasional weekend work is available.
