International students, faculty and staff greatly enhance the vitality of cultural and intellectual life of the Connecticut College campus, and we value the distinctive contributions of these members of our community.

The U.S. presidential transition has called into question some federal legislation that might directly impact certain members of the Connecticut College community. On this site, we will share information, resources and news about upcoming events. Please check back regularly for updates.

Campus Contacts

Students who are planning international travel, or international students who have concerns about their visa status, should be in touch with Carmela Patton, associate dean of the College and international student adviser (cpatton@conncoll.edu). Faculty in the same circumstances should speak with Abby Van Slyck, dean of the faculty (aavan@conncoll.edu), and staff should be in touch with Cheryl Miller, vice president for human resources & organizational development (cmiller5@conncoll.edu).

Additional support is available to faculty and staff members through the College's Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The EAP provides confidential, professional assistance and can be reached at 1-800-252-4555 or www.HigherEdEAP.com.
