Embrace your cultures and expand your horizons through our community.

UMISO is an official student club recognized by the University of Manitoba International Student Union. UMISO was formed in 2018 as a community group and was officially launched as a student club at the University of Manitoba in 2019. The organization currently consists of five executive members and over 100 umiso members. UMISO is dedicated to uniting students in the International community at the University of Manitoba. This year, we are mainly focusing on creating opportunities for students to stay connected as much as possible. Due to the pandemic and transitioning to the remote system at the University, we’ve observed the loss in our community interaction and engagement. Based on our experiences as international students, we saw the need for an effective student-run body that focuses on serving and engaging international students by promoting peer support and increasing community involvement. We aim to establish an effective student-level platform that promotes an active, fun, and welcoming community for international students.
