Staff Changes

I am pleased to report that, effective November 12, 2012, there will be some changes made in the recently renamed International Students and Scholars Office. These changes are being made to improve the services that the University provides to international students and scholars. Dr. Nadia Korobova is being promoted to the position of Associate Director for International Students and Scholars, and head ISSO. Dr. Korobova holds BA from Simferopol State University (Ukraine), MA from University of Northern Iowa, and PhD from Iowa State University. She has extensive experience in international student advising and has served as Assistant Director in the Office of International Programs since 2008. Mr. Ross Schupbach is being promoted to the position of Immigration and Visa Coordinator, in which capacity he will serve as the University’s Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVIS) officer assisting international students with immigration, social security, employment, driver’s license, taxes, and other related matters. Ms. Jenna Vsetecka is joining ISSO to assist international students with general advising matters (e.g., academic advising, personal counseling, etc.). She can be reached at jennav@uni.edu or 3-2852 or in person at 113 MAU.
