About the Culture Corps Program

The vision of the International Student and Scholar Services Office (ISSS) is to have an inclusive and engaged international learning community. One of the ways ISSS helps international students become more active on campus is through the Culture Corps Program. International students can provide unique perspectives and new insights to enrich cross-cultural understanding at the University of Minnesota. This partnership between ISSS and the Women's Center provides an opportunity for Culture Corps Gender Equity Award recipients to share their language and culture with the University of Minnesota community, and also supports the Women’s Center mission of advancing gender equity across identities.
