Be an International Student Welcome (ISW) Volunteer!

ISS recruits current UB students to serve as volunteers during our International Student Welcome (ISW). Our dedicated volunteers are crucial to the success of our welcome programs for new international students. Volunteers perform tasks that vary from distributing materials and directing student traffic to fielding general questions about UB and facilitating team building activities.  You'll also have a ton of fun working with the ISS staff and fellow students to make sure our newly-arrived students feel welcomed!

To volunteer, you must:

  • Be a current UB student (completed at least one semester at UB)
  • Be a continuing student (new and graduating students are not eligible to apply)
  • Be available to come to campus a few weeks before the start of the semester
  • Attend the ISW Volunteer Training
  • Be engaging, enthusiastic, committed, and respectful
  • Be excited to help welcome new international students to UB!

If you know any other students (domestic or international students of any citizenship, academic level, major, etc.) who might be interested in serving as a volunteer, please encourage them apply.
