According to the NYU Division of Enrollment Management statistics, over 20% of the undergraduate student enrollment for New York University is comprised of international students. In its 8th year, the International Student Meeting Program (ISM) hosted meetings with international undergraduate students in support of their transition to New York University and New York City. ISM offers students a platform to share their unique transition experiences, challenges and suggestions. In addition, students are provided with real-time referrals, programs and resources.

The International Student Meeting Program (ISM) has three major institutional outcomes. First, to foster innovation in the establishment of services created for international undergraduate students. Second, to advocate and support international student life. Third, to build community between international students and domestic students.
