The Faculty Advisory Committee for International Students (FACIS) is a group of UCO faculty that works together to expand the collaboration between international students and UCO faculty. The goal of FACIS is to develop creative strategies that help international students connect to UCO faculty and American classroom culture. Faculty in this committee also serve as liaisons for international students in their respective departments.

The committee meets for about 60-90 minutes at 1 p.m. every fourth Friday of the month in the Nigh University Center (specific location will be announced).

How Can I Join?
