The Iranian Students’ Academic & Cultural Organization (ISACO) is a group founded in April 1988 at the University of Texas at Austin. Our main goal is to enhance the academic and cultural orientation of Iranian students at the University of Texas at Austin through social, community service, and cultural events. ISACO is non-profit and independent of any political or religious beliefs. With your contribution, ISACO will be able to offer students the opportunity to join a wonderful organization that will provide an array of opportunities and an extended network at the University of Texas. Thanks to your support, we will be and have been able to:
