Our Vision

Here at Chi Alpha International we are committed to connecting international students to a thriving community within which they can build lasting relationships, experience American culture, and gain a personal understanding of the Christian faith. Through a strong partnership between Chi Alpha Staff and volunteers from within the community, Chi Alpha International is building a bridge between international students and their new community here at American University. 

Want to get involved? 

Global Friends is a program that is designed to help international students experience life outside of the university setting. In partnership with AU Chi Alpha,  Global Friends pairs students from American University with individuals within the American University community. These pairings are made with intent of fostering intercultural friendships that benefit both the student and the Global Friend partner.
