WELCOME TO INTERNATIONAL HOUSE OF RI
Celebrating 52 years of Friendship
 
THROUGH  FRIENDSHIP..... A WORLD OF UNDERSTANDING  
 
International House of Rhode Island is an independent non-profit organization, that relies on community support by its members, donations and by grants.  All members share the International House commitment to promoting international understanding through social, educational activities and programs in a safe environment.
 
 
Mission:
International House of Rhode Island promotes friendship, connection, learning, and global understanding by bringing people together from around the world for cross-cultural exchange. 
 
Established to foster diversity of thought and experience, International House of Rhode Island was founded in 1963 by Bili and Gil Mason, who recognized the need to create a "home-away-from-home" for international visitors and scholars in Rhode Island.  Reaching out to community volunteers, international and American students and faculty, and to leaders and representatives of educational institutions, social service agencies, civic organizations and businesses, IHRI continues to bring the Mason"s founding principles of friendship and understanding to our community of students, faculty, visiting scholars, business people, and their families.
