Welcome to Our House
As the President of I-House, I am honored to be a part of a unique residential and programmatic community that has successfully promoted international understanding and cultural exchange for over 90 years.
You will find the I-House experience to be many things at once: Welcoming, challenging, interesting and fun. It is one of the most purposely diverse residences in the world, and living here exposes you to unexpected experiences and perspectives, along with the chance to make lifelong friends from throughout the world. You’ll have chance encounters with other talented graduate students and scholars, see a diverse set of events and visiting speakers, and share a deep connection with our worldwide alumni and our prominent trustees.
Ultimately, residents leave I-House with a deeper understanding of other cultures and the ability to navigate across cultures and geographies with respect, empathy and humility. I-House changes how you see the world – and how the world sees you.
Our mission grew out of the aftermath of World War I, when countries started to look inward. Today, our mission has renewed and urgent resonance. The I-House experience is needed more than ever.
