Our Mission

The mission of the International Learning, Empowering, Advising, and Developing (iLEAD) student organization is to support incoming international students, both undergraduate and graduate, as they transition to life on campus. iLEAD serves as a resource for new international students who may not be familiar with American culture and college life through mentor relationships between iLEAD mentors and mentees. We hope that incoming international students will use iLEAD as a helping hand as they adjust to life on campus and begin their successful journeys at Vanderbilt.
