About DCISS
Welcome to the Dashew Center for International Students and Scholars!

UCLA is home for more than 12,000 international students and scholars away from home. The Dashew Center is the place where domestic and international students and scholars meet. We enhance the UCLA experience for international students and scholars with our multicultural programs and services. We assist UCLA academic departments with visa services. We serve as a resource and learning center for the entire UCLA community to promote global connection, international understanding and cultural sensitivity.

We are engaged passionately and enthusiastically with this important work. Our Mission Statement captures the essence of who we are and what we do. As members of the UCLA Student Affairs organization, we proudly welcome you to visit us and join us in fostering global connections!
