International Peer Leader Program

The International Peer Leader Program (IPLP) at KSU consists of high achieving KSU students who are recruited to come and share their experiences and expertise with new international students, particularly during orientation. As student leaders, Peer Leaders train hard and volunteer at the International Student Orientation to help the new students acclimate. Peer Leaders also mentor our new students and share tips to becoming successful at KSU. Additionally, they keep in touch with new students throughout their first semester at KSU and provide support for additional questions, comments, and concerns.
