International Student Council


What is ISC

The International Student Council strives to increase International student involvement within the University of Central Oklahoma community, to build a dialog for cross-cultural communication, to involve international students in campus activities, to encourage an understanding of the democratic process, to develop a strong voice for international student concerns, and to develop internship and scholarship opportunities for international students.

The International Student Council shall address and promote the issues and needs that concern international students and represent them in committees (if any) in the university.

The International Student Council shall work collectively to be involved in campus wide activities. This involvement serves to promote the identity of the International Student Council.

The International Student Council shall support any student or organization within the University of Central Oklahoma as far as resources permit.

The International Student Council holds meetings on Fridays from 2pm to 3pm throughout the semester. We meet at the Nigh University Center.

Glocal Passport
International Student Council

Glocal Passport is a program that allows students at Central to experience what it is like to travel to different countries around the world without ever leaving campus. At the beginning of each semester, students interested in the Glocal Passport program will receive an empty passport from the International House Room 202. Throughout the year, students will be able to receive a stamp on their Passport for all of the country events that take place from the International Student Council. At the end of the semester, students may submit their passport with a minimum of attending four country association events and one ISC signature event in a drawing in order to receive an $800 scholarship.
