Coalition of International Students

Coalition of International Students

The Coalition of International Students aims to promote communication among all international student organizations in order to coordinate and consolidate activities of international students while promoting understanding among the various cultures within the university and community at large.


Save the Dates for Our Events

Throughout the academic year, Arizona State University dedicates months and weeks to honoring Sun Devils’ heritage. The Coalition of International Students leads the celebration of International Education Week each November. To learn how you can be involved in planning the celebration of our rich, diverse community of ASU students, connect with our coalition.

Monthly Town Halls | Dates and Location TBA

CIS Town Halls are open events that aim to address international students’ concerns and questions. We collect the most common questions from international students and make them into topics for each month. Some of our topics in the past include Health Insurance for International Students, Mental Health, Intercultural Relationships in the US, etc. Oh, did I mention that free food is provided at every Town Hall?

Club Spotlight

Indian Students Association (ISA)

The Indian Students' Association (ISA) at Arizona State University is a non-profit organization for all Indian students. Our objectives are to promote service and leadership opportunities. We understand how tough it is to arrive in a new country, thousands of miles away from home and settle down into a student's life there. We aim to help new students with the transition to the USA and provide support for educational and social issues that they may face at ASU. Student-student and student-community interactions are also highly encouraged. We also work to provide students a platform to express their creative side, especially on the performing arts front.

Chinese Students and Scholars Association (CSSA)

Chinese Students and Scholars Association (CSSA) at ASU is a student organization dedicated to the goal of promoting social, intellectual and cultural activities for Chinese students and scholars at Arizona State University as well as other interested members in the ASU community. It will also strive to provide opportunities and benefits for its members by facilitating the exchange of information between China and Chinese students studying abroad. CSSA encourages all (especially newcoming) Chinese students and scholars in ASU to get involved in organizing CSSA events and to join our organization.
