LearN  our History

 
 
 
 
 

MISC aims to provide a platform for international students to communicate their concerns when there is a need. MISC speaks as one body in order to make sure that these individual voices are not lost or unheard in the midst of an active community. At the same time, MISC also offers different kinds of support that international students may need to acclimatize and grow throughout their university career. Here at MU, we pride greatly on our diversity. Therefore, MISC aids to harness the unrealized potential that international students may have to offer to the MU community. By introducing valuable cultures, distinct work ethics, and unique principles, there will always be a constant improvement in creating an environment that is conducive to learning both formally and informally.

 
 
 
 

In Spring 2008, MISC proposed the idea of having an MU International Day which comprises of a flag ceremony and the International Bazaar. The bazaar, which has proven to be highly successful in familiarizing globalization at MU in the last 30 years, set a precedent to further push for awareness for the international community. To highlight this event, twenty flags were showcased around campus prior to the bazaar. This was done to not only kick-start the bazaar, but also to consolidate people who share the interest of pursuing internationalization. Until today, this event remains as one of the highlights of MISC.

Missouri International Student Council (MISC) first existed to follow the need to serve the ever-growing international community at MU. There was a realization that no matter how integrated international students are to the environment, there will always be gaps in multiple dimensions between the international students and the local students. MISC was formed with the intention of potentially being the bridge between these gaps.

 
 
 
 
 
 

One of the first events organized by MISC was the International Welcome Party. Initially, its purpose was to unite the various international groups into doing something together as a combined effort.  The event was later refocused to become a welcoming platform at every start of the semester. This party welcomes international and local students alike and attempts to assimilate every individual into our richly diverse community.

 
 
 
 
 

The vision and mission of MISC are to increase efforts of internationalization at MU by increasing global competence, understanding, and partnership. MISC is also dedicated to improving the academic lives of international students and enriching cultural experiences for MU students, staff, faculty, and surrounding communities at the same time. As the vision and mission are constantly evolving, MISC will continue to be the bridge between international and local students as well as providing adequate services according to different needs. It is our hope for the future that the MU campus is viewed through a global lens with a united voice of both the international and local communities.
