What is IPAC?
Begun in 2005, the International Peer Advisory Council (IPAC) is a volunteer-based organization designed to assist newly-arrived international students at UA with cultural adjustment, and to provide an opportunity for intercultural exchange among students, both international and American. We are looking for full-time undergraduate and graduate students who are willing to return to Tuscaloosa two weeks before classes begin in August. This period is probably the most confusing and trying time for new international students, so it is vital that IPAC members be available then.
If I am selected for IPAC, what will I be doing?
IPAC members are leaders among the International community at UA. IPAC members assist International Student & Scholar Services with International Student Check-In and Orientation each semester as well as social activities throughout the year.
