International House of Rhode Island

The International House of Rhode Island (IHRI) is an independent nonprofit multicultural organization that provides a “home away from home” for international students, scholars, professors, researchers, and their families. It enhances the local community by building cultural awareness and knowledge of the world through IHRI programs created to increase connection, celebrate similarities and differences, and envision a world in which friendship and understanding overwhelm anonymity, isolation, and ignorance.

IHRI programming ranges from helping to support individuals’ needs while in Rhode Island to presenting multicultural events and programs. Offerings include conversational English language classes and tutoring at all levels, foreign language classes and tutoring, orientation to local activities, French Club, nationality dinners, and concerts.
