TCU International Student Union (ISU)

The International Student Union (ISU) is a self-governing student organization that attends to the welfare of all international students. It embraces cultural differences, promotes individuality and facilitates student bonding. To do so, the student union hosts a variety of activities throughout the year open to international students. Those activities provide ISU members the opportunity to demonstrate their talents, to work with each other toward a common goal, and to introduce their respective cultures to local students, faculty and staff members. The ISU also  works closely with the  OIA to assist new international students with their accommodations, as well  as  other  issues that may arise during their studies. New students are welcome to join the Facebook Page of Tzu Chi University International Student Union.


TCU International Ambassadors

One of the main duties of the TCU International Ambassadors is to assist the OIA to receive foreign guests. The OIA organizes different types of training programs for the International Ambassadors to be acquainted with proper etiquette and the University’s operation. Being an International Ambassador, you can nurture your own gentle energy, and live your life vigorously.
