CAIR stands for Creating American International Relationships. The CAIR Program aims to foster partnerships between Americans and international students at Oakland University. We match students with partners based on interests and preferences. Our international students appreciate the support and friendship of an American partner as it helps them integrate into this culture and feel welcome. This program is also valuable and rewarding for you as you are able to experience diversity and learn about another culture first-hand without a passport. Both students and partners gain the enriching experience of cultural exchange and new perspectives from around the world.
