The International Student Affairs Committee serves the needs of international graduate students through advocacy and support to ensure they have access to opportunities available to them to achieve a balanced and successful academic, professional and personal development while pursuing their degree programs. Through social and wellbeing programs and initiatives, the committee promotes social and cultural adjustment to help international students feel at home. The committee also fosters engagement and community building among all international students to celebrate diversity and multiculturalism.
Short Bio: Mahmood Raza
I am a 2nd year MBA student at W. P. Carey School of Business at ASU. I did my Engineering from SRM University and worked as a Software Engineer in Bangalore for 5 years. I am passionate about community services and have volunteered for several NGOs working for the environmental cause. My keen interest to get involved in the student governing body pushed me to join the GPSA Assembly. As a director of the International Students Affair, I would like to work with the various bodies like ISSC, ISE and various international students’ clubs for the smooth transitioning of the International students to ASU. I hope to provide a strong voice to support graduate and professional students in their academic and career growth.
Fun-fact: I care about environmental sustainability and am always ready for any kind of volunteering activities.
