ISSO Scholar Services Communiqué

Volume 4, Number 3

April 13, 2007

The Communiqué is an on-going series of messages to departments who sponsor international scholars at Boston University. With the Communiqué, we offer information that helps in the processing of scholar immigration-related documents and petitions. We hope you find the Communiqué a useful tool in working with the ISSO and in successfully hiring and sponsoring scholars from around the world. Past Communiqués are archived on our web site.

ISSO Implements New Database of BU Hosts and Department Contacts

The ISSO has implemented a new secure web-based database to better track department hosts and administrative contacts who supervise or handle immigration processing for international scholars affiliated with Boston University. Additionally, this system will allow Boston University and Boston Medical Center faculty, staff and affiliates who are not actively hosting international scholars, to sign up to receive the ISSO Scholar Services Communiqué, our periodic electronic newsletter.

If you currently host or serve as a department contact for international scholars at BU, or if you would like to receive electronic updates from the ISSO about immigration sponsorship and employment, we would ask that you kindly create a personal contact profile. Current hosts and department contacts who may already be receiving communication from the ISSO, are asked to complete this update form in order to ensure that your current contact information is correctly reflected in our new database.

A direct link to our Department Host/Contact Update Form can be found on our website at: http://www.bu.edu/isso/administrators/contacts/index.html

We hope that this new tool will facilitate improved communication between the ISSO and departments hosting international scholars at BU.

Thank you for taking a few minutes to update your contact profile.
