Mission Statement

The Iona International club serves as a platform to connect people from all backgrounds, nationalities and ethnicities. We offer international themed such as the International Fair every spring, and foster an environment that encourages open and respectful dialogue. This club welcomes ALL students who are “culturally curious” and who enjoy a variety of activities.

Under the Student Leader Alliance for Multiculturalism (SLAM) umbrella, Iona International also seeks to create a community which celebrates diversity AND embraces unity – where everyone is respected for their differences and where these cultural differences can be shared, understood and learned about in a safe and peaceful environment. We also perform several community service and philanthropic activities each year.

Learn more about various cultural traditions, share your stories, make friends from across the globe and take this opportunity to Move the World.
