Who are our Teams?

International Student Engagement Team (ISET)

We work to cultivate a sense of belonging for international students at University of Wisconsin-Madison by creating engaging programs and using effective communication strategies. We are educators who integrate leadership development and themes of social justice and inclusion into our daily practice to help shape a more equitable and impactful experience for ourselves, the students we serve, and the Madison community. 

ISET manages the major engagement programs ISS puts on year-to-year.

Transitions and Co-Curricular Education Team (TCET)

We boldly create and thoughtfully enhance programs and services that effectively support international students in their transitions to and from UW-Madison. We foster our students’ development and campus internationalization by infusing our co-curricular programs with learning outcomes informed by the Wisconsin Experience, ISS values, and themes of identity and inclusion.   

TCET manages International Student Orientation (ISO), offered at the beginning of each semester, and ISS’ transitional and co-curricular education programs.
