The mission of the International Student and Scholar Office is to provide information, services and programs that help international students and visiting scholars achieve their individual educational and personal goals and that foster an appreciation for a culturally diverse learning environment in the larger University community.
Established at UNC Charlotte in 1975, the Office of International Programs strives to strengthen international education and global learning at the University as well as in the Charlotte community. On campus, it seeks to make international understanding, intercultural competency and global awareness a fundamental part of the curriculum and an integral part of campus life through innovative and accessible programming.

The Identity @ Work web page serves as a central hub for students, alumni and faculty/staff to review identity-conscious professional development resources that center and highlight marginalized voices.
Although this is not a live-in situation, this program exists to connect international college students, or scholars, studying in Charlotte with an American family for the purpose of friendship. This developing friendship will help provide support to the international college student and an opportunity for a great cross cultural experience for the student and the family. For many students and families this experience results in long lasting friendships.
