Global Support Network

The Center for Intercultural Advancement assists our international students who may face challenges adjusting to their new life and culture here in America. The Global Support Network is a forum that provides mentoring and educational programming. The GSN is presented by peers and explores requested topics such as culture shock, academic registration, OPT/CPT options, student on-campus employment and applying for a social security card, and more!
