Washington DC, U.S.A.

Washington-buildingThe International Student House of Washington, DC, provides an exceptional residential experience to a highly diverse international community of graduate students, interns, and visiting scholars.The House operates with an ethos that respects and encourages diversity of thought. It fosters an atmosphere of listening and participating, offering a potentially transforming view of the world which will inform their life’s work. It nurtures cross-cultural thinking and assumes readiness to look beyond the residents’ own experience, qualities that are required for the essential leadership in the world for which they are preparing.

No other facility in Washington offers young pre-professionals and future global leaders a comparable alternative to arriving in the city “cold” and making their way on their own. The International Student House maximizes what might otherwise be a missed opportunity to promote intercultural relations and the critical understanding that will follow.
