What We Do

The International Programming team offers many events and cultural activities to support OU’s international student population as well as facilitate cross-cultural exchange on campus. From coordinating new student orientation, offering helpful workshops, providing excursions to experience Oklahoma, educating the Norman community about global cultures, to facilitating the Friends to International Students friendship program, we are dedicated to providing international students rewarding and substantive programming while they attend OU.

Who We Are

Hannah Musselman

Hannah is a Norman native and attended OU, graduating with a degree in Human Relations and a minor in International Area Studies. Hannah fell in love with international education while studying abroad at OU in Arezzo, and then returned to Italy as a student assistant for OUA. After graduating, Hannah moved to New York City to complete her master's in International Education at NYU. Returning to CIS as the International Programs Coordinator is a full circle moment! 

Hannah loves to travel all over the world and is always planning that next trip. In her time at home, she loves yoga, cycling, drinking too much iced coffee, and watching lots of reality television! She is passionate about creating a dynamic cross-cultural community on campus and hopes to cultivate meaningful relationships with the amazing international students here at OU!
