In an atmosphere that embraces cultural diversity and encourages social tolerance, the International House provides ongoing programs and essential services to assist, educate, and support international students and scholars in their transition to U.S. society and academic culture.
In an effort to ensure student, scholar, and institutional compliance with federal regulations, we provide professional expertise on immigration and employment issues.
As advocates of international education, we promote the academic, professional, and personal growth of international students and scholars and foster an appreciation of their many contributions to the WPI community at large.
