Supporting a Community of Students and Scholars

From ensuring some of the world's brightest international students and scholars have the opportunity to study, research, or teach at UC Davis to providing community programming, Services for International Students and Scholars (SISS) helps California and UC Davis become a home away from home for our more than 8,000 international students and more than 2,100 international scholars coming from over 140 countries. 

In addition to welcoming, guiding, and orienting new international students and scholars, we provide ongoing support through expert advising and regular programming—aiming to provide our students and scholars with both a sense of place and sense of self, through orientations, events, and programming that create community, introduce new cultures, and develop skills.

SISS programming, which is often open to the campus community, is also an opportunity for the university community to engage in important intercultural experiences and dialogues.
