International Student Association Mission Statement

The ISA at Lafayette College is a well-established organization, open to all students, with two primary objectives:

1. To promote international diversity and cultural awareness within the college, enhance cultural sensitivity and international understanding, and aim to contribute to the intellectual and social life at Lafayette by sharing our diverse cultural traditions.

2. To assist international students in overcoming any difficulties in adapting to a new lifestyle in the United States, and meeting the challenge of immersion in a different cultural setting.
