The Mumbai Global Center hosted an event to celebrate the Notre Dame community in India and welcome newly admitted students.
International Student and Scholar Affairs
International students and scholars — more than 1,400 from over 90 countries — are an integral part of Notre Dame’s vibrant campus culture.
International Student and Scholar Affairs (ISSA) offers a variety of support services and programs to help international students and scholars make the most out of their time at the University. ISSA coordinates educational and cultural programs and events throughout the year to help international students, scholars and families feel at home in the United States.
In addition, ISSA provides immigration service, guidance, and support to Notre Dame-sponsored international students, J-1 scholars and their dependents. ISSA staff members also educate and remind international students about immigration rules, responsibilities, deadlines and benefits.
Nicole Lee will be attending the University of Notre Dame this fall, along with ten other students from the GCS program.
When Kacey Hengesbach began her undergraduate career at Notre Dame, she didn’t imagine that it would include traveling 8,000 miles to Ahmedabad, India. But thanks to a new course created by Neeta Verma, she had the chance to spend three weeks there last summer, working collaboratively with students from India’s National Institute of Design. Hengesbach and the other students in Verma’s Social Design course continued their partnership with the NID students throughout the fall semester, hosting them for a two-week visit to Notre Dame in September and communicating via Skype and email for the remainder of the course.
