About ISSS

International students and scholars are valued members of the Western community. International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) supports those students and scholars who journey from around the world to study and work at Western.

We provide assistance not only with immigration issues, but also with practical matters, social and cultural adjustment, and other challenges that come with life in a new country. We work to promote cross-cultural exchange throughout the University and invite all members of the Western community with an interest in global issues and identities to take part in our many public events and activities.

We are available to answer questions, to provide resources, and to listen.  Please do contact us with your questions, concerns, suggestions, and ideas at isss@wwu.edu.
