The Office of International Student Services assists internationals in three primary capacities: (1) as advisers concerning immigration rules and regulations; (2) as advocates who are sensitive to the unique needs of non-immigrants; and (3) as liaisons between non-immigrants and their advocates, and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service, the U.S. Department of State, various U.S. consulates and embassies abroad, various departments/offices at JHMI, etc. International students often have unique needs and require a person sensitive to those needs to be their advocate. Staff members in the Office of International Student Services are experienced advocates who recognize the value of international educational exchange and who appreciate the many positive contributions internationals make to the Johns Hopkins community and to the United States. As advocates, staff members are well acquainted with cross-cultural adjustment problems and other related issues. As a result, their involvement with international students at Johns Hopkins goes well beyond the area of immigration regulations.
