VISAS Program

Volunteers with International Students and Scholars

VISAS (Volunteers with International Students And Scholars) is a volunteer program to encourage interaction and friendship between domestic students and international students. There are three roles that students can volunteer for:

Language and Culture Consultants

LCCs meet individually with international students and have conversations in English.

If you would like to volunteer to help international students learn English as an LCC, please fill out this form.

If you are an international student at SUU who would like to be paired with an LCC, please fill out this form.

Classroom Assistants

CAs come to real ESL classes held on campus or virtually and act as teaching assistants.

If you would like to volunteer to be a CA, please fill out this form.

VISAS Cafe attendees

VISAS Cafe attendees come to a free conversation club with snacks and drinks (when not held virtually) and just enjoy socializing with other students. Usually, no signup is required for VISAS Cafe, but while social distancing policies are in effect, VISAS Cafe will be meeting virtually.

To receive an invitation to our virtual cafe meetings, please fill out this form.

Any of these are a great chance to interact with and help international students at SUU. To find out more, please contact us at
