International faculty, researchers, staff, and visitors are a vital part of Wayne State University's intellectual community, providing diverse perspectives and cultural insights in the advancement of academic scholarship. WSU is home to over 650 international faculty, staff, researchers and visiting scholars. Support for immigration as well as social opportunities for international faculty, scholars and their families is available.
The Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) can guide WSU departments through the multi-dimensional process of hiring foreign nationals for temporary appointments and Lawful Permanent Residency (LPR). OISS provides immigration assistance associated with employment of international faculty and staff in H-1B, J-1, O-1, TN and LPR applications.
Although OISS handles the immigration processing, it is based upon the sponsorship information provided by the host School or Department. These pages are intended to provide information needed by WSU departments and their international scholars when bringing internationals to campus to engage in scholarly activity.
