The office of International Student Academic Support (ISAS) was created to promote the academic success of international students and the faculty who instruct them. The importance of these efforts is directly reflected in WOU's Mission Statement http://www.wou.edu/provost/MissionStatement.php

Western Oregon University is a comprehensive public university, operating for the public good, which:

  • Provides effective learning opportunities that prepare students for a fulfilling life in a global society;
  • Supports an accessible and diverse campus community; and,
  • Improves continuously our educational, financial, and environmental sustainability.

On one hand, the presence of international students on WOU's campus is an important part of the university's mission to prepare students for a global society, to support a diverse campus community, and to create a sustainable institution.

On the other hand, WOU has a responsibility to each international student to provide effective learning opportunities, to make all aspects of academic and student life accessible to them, and to continually improve their programs for short and long-term success.
