Mission: As advocates for RISD’s international community, we offer
support and services with immigration compliance, cultural and language
adjustment and navigating US systems.
International Student and Scholar Affairs (ISSA) also coordinates and
provides information about International Student Orientation, which is held
in the fall and assists students in finding the campus resources they
need. ISSA strives to help international students become integrated into
the RISD community and make the most of their experiences here.
