International Student Services
MISSION: The mission of the International/Multicultural Services Office is to support each student in growing and succeeding in academic studies as well as with co-curricular opportunities. The office engages students in critical thinking activities designed to empower them to make moral and ethical lifelong choices which will influence the future communities in which they will reside and the collective society as a whole.
The International Student Services Office is located in TOC (Top
of the Quad Center) above the bookstore. The office serves international
students as they adjust to life in a new country and helps make their transition to Muskingum University a smooth process.
