International Couples & Scholars

International Couples & Scholars


The ICASO is an organization for international couples, students with children, and scholars at UNM who have an interest in meeting other mature individuals from around the world. Members are typically researchers, faculty or students and any spouses and partners (and children). ICASO strives to:

  • Allow members to make friends with others from around the world

  • Provide a support network for all non-UNM spouses/partners as well as the UNM researcher/faculty/student member

  • Plan fun activities and events

Our activities vary from potluck dinner parties, to cooking demonstrations, to trips outside of Albuquerque. The activities for this semester can be found on our Facebook Page GEO International Couples and Scholars or on the GEO calendar.

We hope that this group will help us all meet new people, get out and do fun things, share and learn something about other cultures (and languages), and form a support network of our own with people who share something in common with us! We think this support is particularly helpful for spouses and partners who are not working or studying at UNM, so we need your help to make the connection with your spouse/partner even if you are not interested for yourself. If you think you might want to participate, here is what you should do:
