International Student Services (ISS)

International Student Advisory Committee (ISAC)

What is ISAC?

ISAC is a student working group dedicated to sharing perspectives on international student programs and services and increasing international student engagement with the campus at large.

ISAC allows students to voice concerns and give feedback on-campus resources, supports and systems. It is also a platform for UAlberta International and campus partners to offer professional development to council members, as well as build awareness of services and resources available to international students.

ISAC members are encouraged to represent the diverse perspective of international students by attending events, meetings and to provide crossover representation on various committees.
