International Leadership Program (ILP)

The International Leadership Program is designed for students looking to enhance their leadership, communication and teamwork skills. It provides opportunities for your professional development while serving the SMU community and the global community. It is open to ALL SMU students - domestic, international, graduate and undergraduate.

The International Student and Scholar Services team relies on the support of these student leaders to assist with International Orientation, Welcome Events, On/Off Campus Programming, International Education Week and to serve as connectors among new and returning students. There are also trainings and meetings to prepare leaders throughout the year.

It is the ISSS Office's goal for international students to have meaningful experience at SMU and to help them navigate through all the available resources offered. SMU is home to the International Leadership Program and leaders are always ready to offer advice about living in the U.S., answer any questions about resources off/on-campus, and be a guide.
