International Scholar and Student Services (ISSS) seeks to provide quality services, programs and activities that enhance the cultural awareness, international educational and research opportunities and global perspectives for students, faculty and staff.

The office also serves as a collaborative community resource that facilitates, promotes and strengthens international understanding. General services include immigration and nonresident alien tax advising, cross-cultural workshops, orientation services, seminars on legal issues, notary public services, and programs of a social, cultural, educational and recreational nature which bring together internationals with Americans at UAB and the Birmingham community.

ISSS operates the Smolian International House (1600 10th Avenue South) which serves as a venue for activities and programs to foster international understanding, and the Samuel Ullman Museum (2150 15th Avenue South) honoring the memory of the local poet and civic leader.
