International faculty and their partners can rest easy: Purdue has the necessary expertise and resources to make your move as smooth as possible.
More than 9,800 students and faculty represent 125 countries on the West Lafayette campus. Based on those figures alone, you imagine (correctly) that Purdue has dedicated resources in the Office of International Students and Scholars (ISS) to provide appropriate services and support to international students, faculty, visiting scholars and faculty, and staff. ISS provides expertise and knowledge in recruitment, admissions, immigration, advising and cross-cultural programming.
ISS office does not have the bandwidth to support this initiative alone. Each unit on campus has an ISS Liaison available to assist in the preparation of the visa petition application and serve as a resource to answer visa questions for individuals coming or extending their stay at Purdue University. If you are having difficulty in finding the right person to answer your questions, let us connect you to a professional that can assist you.
