International House

Founded and built in 1924 by John D. Rockefeller Jr. and the Cleveland H. Dodge family, International House affords a unique experience in cross-cultural cooperation and understanding by nurturing leadership, moral courage, and empathy. Each year, more than 700 carefully selected graduate students and interns, from 100 countries, share a residential community and participate in leadership training and diverse intellectural and cultural programs. They study or train at more than 70 academic and professional institutions in New York in fields as varied as financial engineering, musical performance, historic preservation and public health. I-House residents learn essential skills to become future leaders in business, government, the arts and other professions. Information is available in the lobby at 500 Riverside Drive on weekdays from 9 am to 5 pm.
