Nature and the Scope of the Office

OISS provides students with opportunities to study away from the Concordia University Wisconsin campuses. Concordia’s students are eligible to participate in the Concordia University Systems Visiting Student Program, which allows them to spend a semester or two at another of the system’s ten colleges. The Office is also responsible for coordinating and promoting international opportunities for the university community as well as distributing global education grants among students to encourage international study.
