Our Staff

Meet the OISS advisors, leaders and administrators on this page. International students and scholars can find their assigned advisor on the Student Advisor tab or Scholar Advisors tab.

If you are an F-1 or J-1 international student, please find your advisor in the Student Advisors tab. Student advisors are assigned based on the first letter of your surname (family name) except for master's level students and exchange students in the Kellogg School of Management.

International scholars are international visitors and employees, including faculty members, staff, researchers, post-docs, exchange visitors and short-term visitors. Scholar advisors are assigned based on the hosting department/school at Northwestern.
