International Graduate Student Programming Board
About half of the graduate students in the School of Engineering (SoE) are international, hailing from more than 80 countries. The variety and diversity they bring are incredible, and so are the students themselves. They never cease to embrace challenges and commit to achieving their goals, even when faced with daunting difficulties in many aspects of their life due to COVID.
The mission of the International Graduate Student Programming Board (IGSPB) is to create a more cohesive and supportive community for international graduate students that promotes their belonging, wellness, development, and enrichment.
We represent and serve international graduate students in the SoE. Through a variety of social, educational, and cultural events, we strive to empower the international graduate student body to make the most of their collegiate experience. All students, whether inside or outside the SoE, or whether international or not, are always welcome to join our events!
