Who we are

HIS International, Inc., had its beginnings in Columbia , South Carolina in 1991, and now includes staff members working in Columbia and on campuses in Charlotte, NC ( University of North Carolina ), and Blacksburg, VA (Virginia Tech in Blacksburg ), as well as a voluteer service group in Boca Raton, FL (Florida Atlantic University). Other groups in the United States have modeled their programs after HIS International in Columbia . As the scholars & students participate in HIS activities, many lasting relationships develop. When their educational training is finished and they leave, either to go to other American cities or to return to their home countries, the HIS staff continues to be interested in their well-being.
