International Student Advisory Board (ISAB) within the Holmes Cultural Diversity Center is a group of students that hail from every corner of the world. ISAB has two main purposes.
Assist international students in gaining a fulfilling student experience at Mississippi State University, as well as, connecting with the culture of the United States – which is just as unique and different as their own.
Provide different departments and organizations at the university with valuable advice and knowledge of the needs, desires, and wants of international students.
The goal is to bring the international student community together as a whole to promote an inclusive environment for not only international students but the entire Bulldog family.
ISAB has three committees, Programming Committee (PC), Research & Outreach Committee (ROC), and Communication Committee (CC). PC plans and executes programs and events for international and U.S. students, ensuring that the programs and events have educational, professional, and social values. ROC offers a professional platform that aims to represent the needs of international students through advocacy. CC is in charge of flyers, photography, recording videos, social media, and the website. ISAB not only offers an excellent opportunity to get involved on campus, but it also helps you make friends from all over the world while sharing your own culture with them.
