Intercultural Student Services

ISS is committed to the overall development of our underrepresented and underserved student populations through educationally purposeful initiatives that enhance academic and personal success, student engagement, and embrace diversity and global awareness. We can enhance all aspects of your life: academic, professional, personal, social, and cultural.

Intercultural Student Services: For all underrepresented and under-served students

We provide education, awareness and support. ISS works to advise, coach, mentor, and train you as both students and leaders. We also create special programs that establish an atmosphere of respect and success for the diverse needs of international, multicultural, first generation, LGBTQAI+, and student athlete populations, like our First Generation Speaker Series and our initiatives for both males and females.

International Student Services: For international students

We work closely with all international and undocumented students, creating a positive, supportive environment for you and your various endeavors. Our International Student Coordinator provides the primary support and assistance for this student population as you develop and complete your educational goals at Rock Valley College. We celebrate various cultures with community presentations, ethnic celebration days, and our multicultural International Showcase.
