Emily Harper

As an International Student Advisor for the Office of International Student and Scholar Services, Emily helps F-1 international students navigate the academic, immigration and cultural systems inside the U.S. She most often meets with students to talk about maintaining their F-1 immigration status, applying for practical training employment opportunities, and finding success while studying at Portland State University. She greatly enjoys the diverse and dynamic conversations she gets to have with international students and scholars on a daily basis.

Emily has worked in higher education since 2008 in a variety of roles across the U.S. supporting international students. She earned her undergraduate degree in journalism from Missouri State University. She holds an M.A. in Intercultural Studies and also a masters degree in Theological Studies. When Emily is not working in OISSS, you can find her listening to storytelling podcasts, hiking with her family, and baking bread.
