About the Program

International Reach is a unique, cross-cultural speakers volunteer program that places international speakers in schools, campus venues and community organizations in the Madison Area for presentations, discussions and/or conversations. It provides interesting opportunities for international students and their dependents to share perspectives on their home countries with teachers, students and area residents for the purposes of furthering global education and intercultural dialogue.

The International Reach cross-cultural speakers program strives to:

  • Enhance the international student experience
  • Support the Wisconsin Idea and campus internationalization
  • Foster global awareness and cross-cultural understanding
