What is the International Volunteer Action Corps?


Carlos Fuentes is the Assistant Director of Internationalizing the Student Experience at Michigan State University. He implements educational support to enhance students’ global competencies and global citizenship. These programs embrace intercultural and cross-cultural understanding and development for MSU students. Carlos is also the advisor to the MSU International Volunteer Action Corps (IVAC).

What is IVAC?

The International Volunteer Action Corps (IVAC) is a registered student organization at MSU whose goal is to bring together diverse students to learn about and embrace the different cultures that these students come from. IVAC strives to create environments conducive to creating meaningful interactions. IVAC values giving back to the community you are in and therefore provides many service opportunities in the greater Lansing area.

In the past, IVAC has had service projects during winter and summer breaks to Panama, Belize, Mexico, and Canada.
