University of Iowa Organization for the Active Support of International Students (OASIS) was created to better address the interests and concerns of the on-campus international student body. OASIS is a student run organization dedicated towards bridging various communities based on one’s nationality, creating a cohesive UI/International student body, expanding awareness of the enriching presence of the international community to University of Iowa and the local/Iowa City community, and towards providing resources and pro-active support to all international students and scholars.
