OIE Ambassador’s Roundtable
This fund is used to help support international guests visiting UW-La Crosse.  Expenses for hospitality and meal support come from this account to reciprocate the generosity extended to OIE staff when they are visiting host institutions.  Other endeavors, such as supporting of international scholars and students may also be recipients from this fund.  By maintaining this account, we are able to show the best of La Crosse to the world and what it has to offer.

Japanese Relief Fund
UW-L international students from Japan have collaborated with the International Student Organization (ISO) and the Office of International Education to raise awareness about what happened in Japan and raise money for the Japanese Red Cross to help with relief efforts.  These students are collecting donations for a "Japan Relief Fund" through the UW-L Foundation.
