OISS Student Advisory Groups

An advisory group is composed of selected individuals who have unique knowledge, experiences and skills in order to advise OISS on specific topics.

OISS seeks advice from these groups in order to help us provide better services and programming in support of the international community at MSU.

Project Explore serves as the Chinese undergraduate student advisory group for OISS. This is a thinking group that develops ideas and recommends actions. They advise OISS on the experience of being an international student from China and give us insight into things students may need or challenges students may face.

International Student Advisory Group

The International Student Advisory Group is an extension of the International Students Association (ISA). ISA e-board members meet and communicate with the Director of OISS to provide insights into the experiences of international students and offer suggestions on how the university can improve life at MSU for international students.
