“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” –Helen Keller

The international students Bureau will always strive to maintain your welfare and make an eventful UNMC for all students. Collaborations with other departments will be undertaken to assist international students. Plus, events like the international cultural night will be organized, which will give an opportunity to expose students to different cultures. If you have any ideas that will help in enhancing the experience of international students and will contribute to the overall success of UNMC, do not hesitate to bring it on.
