International Student Associations Council (ISAC)

The International Student Associations Council (ISAC) is comprised of the presidents and officers of over 15 international student associations. The Council meets regularly to discuss issues pertaining to international students on campus and develop international student programs.  The Council is assisted by the International Student & Scholar Services staff in planning events of special interest not only for international students, but for the Georgia State community as well.  The officers are international student representatives on campus and are here to help support you.  Please contact the appropriate officer below if you want to join an association, need help, have an idea for an event, or want to know about current group events.
