Who are we?
Welcome to Philly!
ISI Philly consists of Americans and internationals who want you to feel as though Philly is your "home away from home."
Take a look at our "Meet the Team" page and you'll see we are a diverse group!
Affiliation: We are a Christian non-profit organization affiliated with the Chaplain's office at The University of Pennsylvania. You do not have to be at U Penn to join us, as we are open to everyone, regardless of university, race, religious background, gender orientation or country of origin. ISI Staff are associated with International Students, Incorporated. (See: What is ISI?)
