Oakland University Providing an Opportunity for Families to Learn from International Students Through Their CAIR Program
CAIR stands for Creating American and International Relationships. The CAIR Program aims to foster partnerships between Americans and international students at Oakland University. They match students with partners based on interests and preferences. Their international students appreciate the support and friendship of an American partner as it helps them integrate into this culture and feel welcome. This program is also valuable and rewarding for the volunteers, as you are able to experience diversity and learn about another culture first-hand without a passport. Both students and partners gain the enriching experience of cultural exchange and new perspectives from around the world. The ISSO (International Students and Scholars Office) hosts several events throughout the academic year which partners and their students are encouraged to attend. They also notify you of multicultural events on campus. Often, the whole immediate family can attend if interested. Although, these events are not mandatory, they provide a valuable opportunity to bond with your student and meet other program members.
