Members of the 2021-2022 International Welcome Team

International Welcome Team members provide the support and knowledge necessary to make new undergraduate students feel at home as a Husker from the moment they arrive in Nebraska. The application closes at 11:59 p.m. on April 1.

Welcome Team members are the friendly face and resource at the Lincoln airport when new international undergraduates arrive. The team also helps students check in and get connected within the University Housing residence halls and leads activities during International Orientation and International Welcome Week.

Current domestic and international degree-seeking undergraduates are eligible(IEP, Exchange, and graduate students are not eligible).
Applicants with previous experience in mentoring, leadership, or cultural groups and a desire to help new international students adapt would make strong candidates, but such experience is not required.
Must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 and be in good academic standing.

Time commitment
Work approximately 50-60 hours before classes begin in the Fall semester (includes training).
Work approximately 30-40 hours before Spring classes begin.

Welcome Team members can have other on-campus jobs. However, they cannot work at their other position during the time frame of Welcome Team responsibilities before each semester begins. Other than occasional Welcome Team meetings, there are no required work hours for the Welcome Team during the semester.
