Peer Integrator Program

Our Peer Integrator Team for 2014-2015 has been selected! Check back February 2015 to apply for the 2015-2016 Peer Integrator Team.

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.

Activities and programs coordinated by International Friends, Inc. provide students with a personal connection to the Tucson community.
