ISAB: Empowering International Student Voices

Are you passionate about supporting the international student experience at the University of Georgia? Look no further than the International Student Advisory Board (ISAB)! As a dynamic student advisory unit operating under the guidance of the Department of International Student Life (ISL), ISAB is dedicated to amplifying the voices of international students and advocating for their needs within the UGA community.


Who We Are

ISAB is a close-knit community of 12 undergraduate and graduate international students from every corner of the UGA campus with varied backgrounds and cultures. ISAB includes a Chairperson and Secretary and is advised by ISL to provide administrative and financial support.


What We Do

As champions of international student advocacy, we meet bi-weekly to address the pressing needs and concerns of our peers. These discussions are more than just talk – they’re the catalyst for action. Together, we develop strategic recommendations and action plans to effectively advise ISL and other UGA departments and offer supportive programming for students.
