• Following the University’s “Protect the Nest” plan, face coverings are required for all visitors to the International Village.

• We will continue using technology to limit face to face meetings as much as possible. Please call (573-986-6863) or email ( before coming to the office.

• International Student Services is not holding drop-in office hours. Please contact Dr. Brooke at if you have issues related to international student regulations.

• We encourage anyone who does visit the International Village to bring a computer or smart phone. For visitors who do not contact us beforehand, we will use a virtual meeting system to allow the visitor to speak with an OIES representative. Having your own device will make this process simpler and safer.
