About Us


The International Student and Scholar Services office fosters and supports a global campus community as part of the University of Utah's transformation into a global university.


The mission of International Student and Scholar Services is to support the academic, research, and community service mission of the University of Utah by providing opportunities for all students, faculty and staff to incorporate an international, cross-cultural and global dimension into their academic and professional lives.

  • It seeks to foster and support a positive, interactive learning environment for international students and faculty through programming and services.
  • It supports the concept of the global community through an international network of individuals with academic and economic ties to Utah.
  • It promotes institutional and public awareness of the value of international educational exchange.


International educational exchange constitutes the mobility and interaction of students and scholars across borders and cultures. The International Student and Scholar Services office believes international educational exchange develops global competence and other essential skills and awareness to be successful in today’s interconnected world and global society.
