International Student Support
One of the noticeable changes among the UVA student body over the past few years is the increase in international students; they now make up more than 10% of the total student population, representing over 90 countries. The Office of the Dean of Students seeks to work with other units in creating a supportive environment which promotes international students' full engagement with the University's extracurricular life and enhances the sensitivity of the larger community to the needs, interests, and cultural traditions of our international students.
At the same time, the Office of the Dean of Students recognizes the intellectual and social diversity among international students and strives to offer its services accordingly.
The Office also seeks to maintain on-going cooperative relationships with students, faculty/staff, alumni, parents, and the community to advance the educational growth of international students.
