Support for International Students

The Office of Intercultural Affairs

The Office of Intercultural Affairs (OIA) in Student Life offers 1-to-1 advising, free skill-building and intercultural competency workshops, volunteer opportunities, cultural excursions, and community-building events throughout the year. We also have mentorship and social programs for new international students that last a semester or longer to help with cultural, academic, and language transition and make meaningful connections along the way.

There are four areas within OIA that support the grown, development, and learning needs of students from racialized background, undergraduate and graduate international and aboriginal students, and students from various faith perspectives:

  • International Programming and Advising (UC 3rd Floor South)
  • Diversity and Cultural Programming and Advising (UC 3rd Floor South)
  • The Multi-Faith Resource Team (Raithby House)
  • The Aboriginal Resource Centre (Federal Building, 620 Gordon Street)
