Welcome to Concordia University Irvine!

Every year it is our privilege to welcome students from around the world to Concordia University and to our beautiful campus in Irvine, California. We are committed to the academic success and social development of our international students and highly value the unique perspective students from around the world bring to the Concordia community. Our international students quickly become part of the Concordia family as they interact with American students in our residence halls, cafeteria, classrooms, and during informal student activities. Additionally, our American students and professors appreciate and are eager to learn from international students as they share aspects of their own unique cultures.

Engage as Global Citizens

The Global Village is one of four Living-Learning Communities at Concordia. It leads the campus in exploring what “global community” means and what it actually looks like in everyday living. In addition to attracting local students passionate about travel, global issues, world cuisine, and building authentic cross-cultural friendships, the Global Village positions international students to play an active role in shaping the communal experience with their cultural expertise and perspectives.

The Global Citizens Club is a student-led club that empowers CUI students to become true global citizens through learning celebration and service. Events provide a platform for students around the world to collaborate on meaningful goals and to celebrate their differences, instead of being divided by them.

CultureFest is an annual tradition and the longest-running campus-wide event at CUI. In addition to an outdoor lunch and mainstage performances, international students step up to represent and share about their culture through food, visual displays, dress, and storytelling.

International Student Ambassadors (a.k.a. ISAs) are a team of globally engaged local or international student volunteers who are positioned to help new international students feel welcome and supported at Concordia. As a student leadership position, the ISA role can strengthen resumes, serve as a foundation for requesting references from the International Center staff, and function as a preparation for future opportunities.

The Global Graduate Reception celebrates the achievements of international graduates who successfully complete their programs of study at Concordia. It is a joyous gathering of family, friends, faculty, and staff as graduates share their experiences and hear words of blessing from their loved ones and mentors before embarking on the next stage of their journeys.
