International Student Mentoring Program

The mission of the International Student Mentoring Program (ISM) is to provide more individualized support for new international students at Puget Sound. New international students are paired with volunteer student mentors and have the opportunity to correspond and work with their mentor both before arriving at school and during the school year. This is a fun way to help others and learn from wonderful people!

This was the first year of the program and ISM is now starting the process of looking for mentors and coordinators for next year. Interest meetings will be held on March 8th and March 21st at 8:00 p.m. in the Student Diversity Center (3211 N.15th, the house across the street from Diversions Café). Applications can be picked up at and turned in to the International Programs Office (Howarth 215). Applications are due on March 26th. Questions can be directed to Shannon Forbes (
