International Student Organization (ISO) at UTSPH

ISO 2 | International Student Organization

Welcome to the International Student Organization’s Page at the University of Texas School of Public Health (UTSPH). International Student Organization (ISO) is a student organization at UTHealth’s School of Public Health. We are a novel organization, established in January 2012. We at the UT School of Public Health have hundreds of vibrant international students from across the world. We pioneered ISO to provide support and resources for making transition easier and less stressful for all international students coming from across the world to attend school in Houston.

Mission

The purpose of the ISO as a student organization of the School of Public Health at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston is to:

  • Facilitate international students’ transition to life in Texas and in the United States.
  • Facilitate international students’ integration into life at the School of Public Health and life in America
  • Promote awareness, friendliness, and harmony across different cultures within the SPH environment
  • Serve as an advocate for the issues faced by international students at the School of Public Health
  • Act as a liaison between the international student body at the School of Public Health and the Office of International Affairs.

ISO has compiled this Transitioning to Life in Houston document to aid students in their transition to life at UTSPH as well as in Houston and and Texas a whole.
