Scholar Information

​​International education and cultural exchanges are one of the most effective means of developing lasting and meaningful relationships. They provide an extremely valuable opportunity to experience the Unites States and our way of life, as well as, sharing their worldview with CMU faculty, staff and students.

The Office of International Affairs (OIA) offers assistance to faculty, staff and other department members who are interested in inviting international scholars to join CMU. We also provide assistance in obtaining work visas (H-1 B) for noncitizens or nonresidents of the United States to allow them to work at CMU. ​

Eligible faculty and staff members who are interested in becoming legal permanent residents of the United States can seek our help to obtain this benefit from the U.S. Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services.

If you require further information, please feel free to contact Lindsay Barron at garbu1la@cmich.edu or by phone at (989) 774-4308.​
