Welcome to the International Students Connections Community!

The Career Center recognizes that social identities and career experiences often intersect and that Villanovans may face specific challenges navigating the career development process as they explore the world of work. This is a space to connect international students, international alumni and employers, with one another through networking, professional development and educational events and programming. We will continually develop this community as we become aware of additional opportunities to advance the growth of all members of our community.
