Joe Peterson

International Student Advisor

Joe Peterson is in charge of assisting our international undergraduate students at Case Western Reserve University. Joe's primary function is advising international students on immigration regulations and ensuring they maintain their visa status properly while attending CWRU, but he also assists with any academic, personal, financial, social and cross-cultural concerns students may have.

Joe received his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in Teaching English as a Second Language from Kent State University, where he also worked as an ESL instructor and as an International Student Advisor before joining CWRU. He studied abroad in Dresden, Germany, which was an experience that helped him discover his passion for working with international students in higher education.
