CISO House

Council of International Student Organizations (CISO)

Mission and Scope

The Council of International Student Organizations (CISO) was formed in the Spring semester 2016 with the purpose of helping international student organizations collaborate and cooperate with their various activities. The organization successfully coordinated an “International Olympics” and took the lead in participating in a Spring World Festival on campus. The CISO takes a leadership role in guiding and communicating between member organizations; serving as an analog among international student organizations to “pan-hellenic” associations in Greek-letter organizations. To that end the CISO is a representative body comprised of one designated representative from each of the international student organizations at WKU.
