ISSSTRAINS offers workshops, student and scholar panels, and coaching to build the global skills that lead to more effective and enjoyable intercultural communication.

We take intercultural theory and international experience and help you develop global competence right where you are. You know your job and you know how to show Illinois hospitality. ISSSTRAINS will help make sure that translates well in your diverse teams and as you serve diverse, international populations.
