International Students

ISE is committed to supporting our growing international population.  We recognize coming to our campus from a far is sometimes challenging, we are open to talking to all students to see if our office can support a smooth transition.

Here at RISD we all have an incredible opportunity to meet folks from across the country, and across the world.  If you have ideas for cross-culture events please email  We are happy to partner with students, and offices alike to provide fun community events for all.
