International Faculty, Staff & Visiting Scholars

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 and research. WSU sponsors scholars for a variety of different nonimmigrant classifications, depending upon the purpose and nature of their visit. All requests for university sponsorship officially begin in the host department or School. Although OISS handles the immigration processing, it is based upon the sponsorship information provided by the host School or Department. Additionally, OISS  offers a wide range of programs and activities that help our international visitors adjust to WSU  and to the U.S.
