Engagement Opportunities


At St. John’s University, we pride ourselves on welcoming an inclusive, globally-aware community that reflects the diversity of our students, employees and home city.  St. John’s is committed to the success of all our students, and our initiatives to support international students throughout their time here—from arrival through graduation—are just one way to help foster that success.

If you are an international student, we encourage you to engage your St. John’s community.  Sign up for a Conversation Partner.  Get to know St. John’s, NYC and the United States from a different perspective—the “insider’s view.”  And if you are a St. John’s employee or student, we invite you to show our international students what it means to be part of the St. John’s family by supporting our efforts as a volunteer.

Read more about these initiatives below, and get involved! If you would like to participate in these programs complete our quick online form or contact us at [email protected]


Conversation Partners 

The Conversation Partners Program is an opportunity for you--international students whose native language is not English--to practice conversational English in a relaxed, friendly environment.
