ISS Liaisons

The process for hiring international faculty and staff in J-1, H-1B, TN, O, or permanent residence status is coordinated by ISS and the hiring department. Within most academic departments there are ISS trained Departmental Liaisons who serve as point persons during the hiring process. The liaisons have received training from ISS staff who are fluent in the rules and regulations pertaining to international faculty and staff.

Faculty and staff interested in hiring international faculty or staff work with the Departmental Liaison and eventually the Head of Department to finalize required paperwork. The Departmental Liaison is familiar with the procedures that a hiring department must follow in order to be in compliance with the State of Indiana, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS formerly INS) and the Department of State (DOS).

Departmental Liaisons may be contacted with questions or concerns regarding the hiring process for J-1, H-1B, TN, O or permanent residence status in the department in which they are employed.
