Intercultural Student Engagement
The Office of Intercultural Student Engagement promotes cultural awareness, dialogue, and interaction
while serving as a hands-on resource for specific RISD communities. Primary target communities include students of color; international students; students identifying within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning (LGBTQ) spectrum; religious and/or spiritual students; and those dedicated to inclusive community. Included in the ISE office is the Office of International Student Services (OISS), which specifically addresses international student success and immigration.
The office provides leadership in the areas of student success, retention programs, campus education, and immigration compliance. The office works closely with RISD’s faculty, staff, and administrators. As a resource, it advises students on social, cultural, and personal matters,
financial aid issues, and academic procedures. It assists in student and leadership development through supporting and advising student cultural groups.
