International Community

Students from all over the World together on the Quad

Concordia has built an opportunity for all students to broaden their view of the world by providing an international dimension through the curriculum and composition of the student body. The College actively promotes international cultural and educational interchange.

The Director of International Student Programs, the International Student Advisor,  the Director of the International Center for English as a Second Language, and the Associate Dean for Student Development advise international students and are available in matters related to government regulations, U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), housing, employment, academic, athletic, and personal matters.

Each year, Concordia College welcomes students from around the world to live and study in a true mosaic of culture and viewpoints. Time after time, our students say that one of the things they value most about being at Concordia is the opportunity to live in a diverse environment—and how this increases their respect for both the differences and similarities of people and cultures.

Concordia students come from more than 25 states and 34 countries worldwide. Student organizations such as the Multi-Cultural Club and the International Club support and celebrate diversity on campus through student activities such as dinners, dances, fashion shows, and service and outreach programs.
