The mission of our office, which was founded in 1936, is to assist international students, academic staff and their families by advising them concerning US federal immigration, tax and labor regulations, and by providing counseling on personal, academic and cultural matters.
We also promote cross-cultural awareness in the Cornell community through educational programming, such as orientation, cultural adjustment, and cross-cultural communication. Finally, our goal is to serve as an information service for the Cornell, Ithaca, and surrounding communities; and in general to promote the benefits of international educational exchange.
