The mission of CCIS is "Connecting Stanford Internationals with the Community." Meeting with people from other countries is our reward. CCIS is a volunteer organization that supports international graduate students, visiting scholars and their families at Stanford University. We are "resource people" who become friends with internationals adjusting to America. In the process, we gain friends from around the world and enrich our lives.
The English in Action program of CCIS matches English-speaking community volunteers with Stanford international graduate students, visiting scholars, post-doctorates, or spouses. Partners meet weekly for casual conversation and cultural exchange.
This program provides volunteers and internationals with the opportunity of meeting once a week for an hour to practice English and develop a friendship.
