The International Students Group (ISG) was formed in
2001 in an effort to organize, support, and facilitate the integration
of international students into the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology (GSAPP) culture. ISG members are
GSAPP students who identify themselves as international students
regardless of immigration status. One of the ISG's primary purpose is
to help incoming international students achieve a smooth transition
into GSAPP life, as well as to guide international students in the
application process and to advocate for international students needs.
The group also aims to serve as a resource for GSAPP by informing
about the needs and achievements of therapists and clients from
foreign countries, by enhancing the dialogue with practitioners and
scholars from eclectic backgrounds, and by broadening the range of
learning and relational opportunities for the GSAPP community.
