IPSO is dedicated to supporting the university's commitment to diversity and inclusion by helping our colleges and departments bring new international visitors and employees to campus. We strive to provide excellent service to our colleges and departments, as well as all international visitors and employees.
Please explore our web pages to learn how our dedicated and professional staff provides information and assistance to departments, scholars and students about sponosored/hosted nonimmigrant visa status options (J-1, F-1, H-1B, TN, E-3 and O-1), recruiting international faculty and sponsoring current personnel for permanent residency (EB-1b and EB-2a). Questions regarding Augusta University House Staff programs may be addressed to Graduate Medical Education (GME).
IPSO also acts as a resource to enhance and support the work experiences of all postdoctoral appointees and their faculty mentors with regards to postdoc appointment and salary standards.
