International Student

When we recognize our interconnectedness and the fundamental dignity and equality of every human being, we help to build a world that is more accepting, secure and free.”—Barack Obama


The International Student community is designed to be a space for people who identify with or have an affinity to the international student body at Drew. Drew is ranked top 10 nationally in enrolling international students and currently hosts about 400 students from all over the world on campus, which brings both an opportunity and a responsibility to the Drew community. We have the opportunity to meet with and learn about the cultures and perspectives of our international classmates. And we have the responsibility to create a safe and welcoming environment for these international students.

Thus, this community’s purpose is twofold: First, to offer resources, programs, and support that cater to international students’ specific needs to help them succeed at Drew. Second, to bring together faculty, staff, domestic students, and the greater Drew community around how to best host international students and to enjoy the benefit of a highly diverse and internationalized campus.

If you are interested in participating in and/or supporting this community, please feel free to share your experiences, provide resources that may support Drew as a leader in college campus internationalization.
