What is ISAB and what do we do?
ISAB aims to be the united voice of international students in Nebraska. We advocate for international students to enhance their experiences on our campus. Last year since ISABfounding, we have carried out a series of initiatives, including:
A series of community discussions where international students can make their voices heard and share their experiences in a safe and courageous student-led space. Information gathered from community discussions has been brought to the attention of campus leaders in the global space. ISAB aims to implement changes with various campus partners based on the findings and recommendations of community discussions.
An International Student Career Pathway event including: a round table with 5 international alumni, free career portraits, a curriculum vitae / cover letter / LinkedIn reviews by ONE Career services and graduate studies.
Counseling training for international students (ISAT) to be implemented at the college level. Aims specifically to provide training and professional development to faculty and staff who work with or advise international students.
Partnerships and strong relationships with campus management and administrative units such as the Associate Vice Chancellor for Global Affairs, Office of Global Strategies, ISSO, A FIRE, OASIS, and more.
