OIP Hosts Government Training for International Student Liaisons

By Caitlin Burns | November 13, 2019

The Office of International Programs (OIP) hosted 45 school and college officials from Pennsylvania and New Jersey on Nov. 8 for a training seminar about international student regulations. 

Federal government representatives from several divisions of the Department of Homeland Security, including the Student and Exchange Visitor Program, reviewed the mandated responsibilities for institutions and the “designated school officials” who liaise between students and the federal government.

Trends in security investigations, online degrees, and a new statewide consortium for international student recruitment were among the topics discussed.
