The Cultural Partner Program is a program that pairs internationals at UA with U.S. students, faculty and staff. The partners meet once a week at a time they decide on to share a conversation, have dinner, play sports, watch a movie or anything they would like to do!
This is a wonderful opportunity for all participants to:
After signing up, staff in the OIP will match partners based on the information they provided. OIP staff will try their best to pair each participant with someone with similar interests. The program coordinator will then send each participant an e-mail with the contact information for his/her partner. The e-mail will also include information about the opening social event. Partners need to get in contact with each other as soon as possible and determine if both participants will be attending the social. However, if a partner is not able to attend due to class, that partner needs to let his/her partner know. The partners can then go ahead and set up their first meeting when both are available.
It is very important that you fill in the correct form!
