Additional Community Families Needed for New International Students

The Office of International Student Programs is looking for a few more Canisius community family volunteers to connect with the new international students this semester.

The Canisius community family program pairs international students with a family from the Canisius community, including staff, faculty, administrators and alumni. Families include their student in family events, activities, and holiday celebrations. Families are encouraged to contact and invite their student to family outings at least once per month.

The ISP office hosts two events each semester to encourage communication between families and their students. The student does not live with the family. The family should provide a support network for their international student. If you are interested in volunteering, please submit an online application on the CCFP website by clicking here.
