Herb and Ellie Sklenar Center for International Programs

International student

The Sklenar Center for International Programs (SCIP) provides leadership and support for international education initiatives on the campus of Birmingham-Southern College.

Our mission is to help students develop a deep appreciation for the diversity of human experience and to seek a global perspective beyond their studies. Much of our success is due to collaboration with faculty, staff, community members and alumni who share our commitment to internationalization. 

The center divides its responsibilities between three programs: Study Abroad, International Student and Scholar Advising, and Global Engagement Initiatives. 

Study Abroad
SCIP encourages the development of globally-engaged students through advising, preparation and support for study abroad and exchange programs, international internship and research opportunities, and interaction with international students and scholars on campus. 

International Student and Scholar Advising Services
The Sklenar Center provides assistance to international students and scholars during their experiences at BSC through immigration advising, orientation, cultural training, advocacy and cross-cultural programing.

Global Engagement Initiatives
SCIP offers programs that create opportunities to explore global issues. These initiatives provide access to cross-cultural perspectives and connections that enhance the overall BSC experience.
