What is a Peer Integrator?
Peer Integrators (PIs) serve as leaders for the Fall and Spring International Student Orientation AND as student ambassadors for the international student community. The PI program requires a 1-year commitment from participants. PIs will provide new international students with the information needed to successfully begin their college experience by introducing new international students to the campus and its resources. In the process, PIs will develop program development, leadership, teamwork, and cross-cultural skills throughout the program. Students with international and/or intercultural experience are strongly encouraged to apply. The Peer Integrator program is open to both international and domestic students.
International Friends, Inc. is a volunteer organization composed of Tucson community members interested in meeting, assisting, and entertaining international students. The program provides opportunities for international students and community members to make acquaintances and learn about each other's culture. Activities and programs coordinated by International Friends, Inc. provide students with a personal connection to the Tucson community. The International Friends , Inc. program is not a "live-in" hosting program. Many community members often invite their assigned international students to visit them for special holidays or traditional American celebrations.
