Message of Support to our International Community

  • Mar 4, 2022

Dear international Longhorns,

The escalating Russia-Ukraine conflict weighs heavily on our minds, and Texas Global stands with all individuals who have been displaced, whether from Ukraine or other regions. We actively support displaced students and scholars, and are committed to continuing assistance for those who are most in need.

During unsettling times, your thoughts may turn to family and friends who are not in Austin, or to other related concerns. International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) and other campus resources are available to support you.
