Cross-Cultural Discussion Groups

The Cross-Cultural Discussion Groups are an opportunity to meet other UMN students from a variety of colleges, majors, and nationalities in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. During a group’s weekly discussion, you will share cross-cultural experiences and reflect on a various topics including friendship/relationships, taboos and stereotypes, culture shock, educational systems around the world, and much more. ISSS has facilitated these groups for more than 30 years.
