What is ISAB and what do we do?
ISAB aims to be the united voice of international students at Nebraska. We advocate for international students in order to better their experiences at our campus. This past year since ISAB’s founding, we led a series of initiatives include:
A series of Community Chats where international students are able to raise their voices and share their experiences in a student-led, safe, and brave space. Information gathered in Community Chats has been reported to campus leaders within the global space. ISAB aims to implement changes with various campus partners based on Community Chats findings and recommendations.
An International Student Career Pathway event featuring: a panel discussion with 5 international alumni, free career headshots, resume / cover letter / LinkedIn reviews by UNL Career Services and Graduate Studies.
International Student Advising Training (ISAT) to be implemented at college-level. Specifically aimed to provide training and professional development for faculty and staff who work with or advise international students.
Strong partnerships and relationships with campus leadership and administrative units such as Associate Vice Chancellor for Global Affairs, Office of Global Strategies, ISSO, AFIRE, OASIS, and more.
