Student Life

The International Center

Student Life’s International Center (IC) serves U-M's international student, faculty, scholar, and staff population, facilitates intercultural and international education, and fosters a global campus community at the University of Michigan and beyond. The IC is also the university's central source of advice and counsel on U.S. immigration regulations and compliance.

English Language Institute – Conversation Circles

Conversation Circles are a volunteer program sponsored by the English Language Institute (ELI) which was started more than thirty years ago to promote intercultural exchange and to provide international students and scholars at U-M with opportunities to practice English in an informal, casual setting. In each Conversation Circle, a small group of non-native speakers of English (up to 6 people) are paired with a native-English-speaking volunteer for a weekly hour-long conversation.
