This is the blog of the International Cultural Service Program (ICSP) at Portland State University. The ICSP is a scholarship program for international students dedicated to promoting cross cultural understanding at PSU and in the greater Portland area. Each term our student members give in-person presentations and lead activities in Portland classrooms and in the community with the goal to create a more welcoming community. This blog serves as another tool for our members to share about their cultures through writing, images, and videos.

Our vision for this blog is to spread cultural awareness, provide diverse perspectives, and to help grow appreciation for cultural differences. The blog is a collaboration between our members, coordinators, and program advisor who all contribute to the process of creating posts such as interviews, program updates, event reports, and cultural topics with significant meaning to our members.
