Our staff continues to work remotely at this time. We are preparing to return to working on campus for Fall 2021 and will continue to monitor COVID-19 information and guidance from local, state, and federal sources.

All UCR students are welcome to get involved with our intercultural programs! We are also happy to assist faculty and staff who are exploring ways to support our growing international student population.
