Purpose

The International Center Student Council (ICSC) provides globally minded students with a forum to identify and examine issues affecting students. ICSC serves as a direct link between U-M students and the International Center. It is dedicated to helping the International Center fulfill its mission.

Goals

  • Provide a forum for issues affecting students.
  • Maintain open channels of communication among students, student groups, and IC staff.
  • Participate in the planning and implementation of programs and initiatives.
  • Promote active engagement between international and U.S. students.
  • Represent the international student body as needed on campus or in community.
  • Engage in additional projects and activities as determined by the International Center.

Eligibility and Membership

  • To be eligible, you must be a student who will continue to be enrolled at U-M for classes in the Fall Term. International scholars and alumni who have already graduated are not eligible to apply.
  • Membership is open to both international and U.S. students at all degree levels and all majors.
  • Members are a diverse group of current students selected through a competitive application process.
  • Members are expected to serve one academic year (Fall 2016 - Winter 2017) and may be eligible to return.

Membership Benefits

  • A leadership opportunity for students to connect with the International Center, student associations, and the greater student population.
  • An opportunity for students to see the bigger picture of decisions made at U-M and to help shape them.
  • Serve as an ambassador for the International Center.
  • Develop cultural sensitivity and understanding of others through intercultural encounters.
  • Build skills for effective collaboration with peers across disciplines.
  • Identify, plan and implement programs and initiatives to foster a global community. 

Meetings and Time Commitment

  • Meeting attendance is required. We anticipate the team will meet once a month. However, smaller project teams will meet more frequently based on their needs to discuss and develop programming initiatives.
  • On average, members will commit approximately 6~8 hours per month. The monthly team meeting, project team meetings, and attending events count towards those hours.

Application Process and Deadline

The application is closed for 2016-2017 academic year. Please check back for update in the future.
