Executive Board


Welcome to the Association of International Students

The AIS represents an organization that transcends the boundaries of country and race as it brings together students of every ethnicity and nationality, uniting them under a common interest. 

We will serve as both peers and mentors, never tiring in our determination to foster an all-inclusive environment that serves both to educate and to entertain. 

It is our wish that everyone would see the AIS for what it truly is—an organization made of students, for students and by students. We are here to improve the lives of our fellow international students, and this will be our measure.

The purpose of AIS is to promote intellectual, social, and cultural activities, international fellowship, as well as assist the orientation of students form the other countries and encourage their participation in various student activities and develop close ties between the host community and the international community.
