Welcome to the new ISS Student Website!

It is with very great pleasure that I announce the launch of our ISS program website designed for YOU, our enrolled and involved students.  As you know, we already have an outwards-facing recruitment website aimed to tell potential students about what we offer.  But we also feel it is very important to give you a dedicated ISS program website too: a site where you can find vital advising and course registration information; a site with tips on online student success, career services and technology help; and a site that keeps you up to speed with all our latest news on program developments ranging from new courses and new faculty to new students and new graduates! 

We are indebted to the work of many people in creating this site for you.  Stefano Bettani and Mel Wensel were key in starting our planning, and then Aimee Kelley and Joe Hannah have been absolutely crucial in working with the professional web development team from the College of Arts and Sciences to bring the ideas to fruition.  We are very indebted to all of these folks, and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them very much indeed.

If there are elements you think we still need to add or other improvements we can usefully make to particular pages, do please let me, Aimee or Joe know. And most of all, I hope you enjoy using the site and by doing so, find another way to stay integrated in our ISS community!
