Community Resources

​​​​​​There is a deep connection between Central Michigan University and the town of Mount Pleasant. We aim to further these connections and foster cross-cultural understanding and appreciation between our international students and the greater community. Community members are invited to engage with our international students through campus events, such as the annual International Expo, and through the Global Ambassadors Program.

For our international students, studying in America means they will get to enjoy a typical American college experience. Just like domestic students, they are often living away from home for the very first time. Add culture shock to that dynamic and these students feel very far from home.

Living in Mount Pleasant provides our international students the opportunity to experience American life in a unique way. They become part of our town and want to be involved just like any other community member. Various organizations throughout the community help enrich this experience by getting involved with our international programs. If you or your organization would like to get involved, contact the Office of Global Engagement at 989-774-4308.

Request a Global Ambassador

Global Ambassadors are highly diverse and motivated international students and scholars who are eager to share their culture with others. Ambassadors can be requested by community members both at Central Michigan University and beyond to present on various topics, facilitate multicultural discussions, or participate in cultural events and celebrations. The goals of the Global Ambassador Program are to foster global awareness, increase cross-cultural education, strengthen internationalization at CMU and beyond, enhance the international student and scholar experience at CMU, and support CMU's mission, vision, and core values.
