The International Student Council (ISC) strives to increase international student involvement within the University of Central Oklahoma community, to build a dialog for cross-cultural communication, to involve international students in campus activities, to encourage an understanding of the democratic process, to develop a strong voice for international student concerns, and to develop internship and scholarship opportunities for international students.

  • The ISC shall address and promote the issues and needs that concern international students and represent them in committees if any in the university.
  • The ISC shall work collectively to be involved in campus-wide activities. This involvement serves to promote the identity of the ISC.
  • The ISC shall support any student or organization within UCO as far as resources permit.

The International Student Council holds meetings from 2-3 p.m.  Fridays throughout the semester. Meetings are held in the Nigh University Center.
