Are We Creating a Welcoming Environment for UNI International Students?

The Student Affairs Professional Development Committee is pleased to present on Wednesday, October 21 at 3 PM in the Maucker Union Center for Multicultural Education:  A Panel Discussion:  How do we create a welcoming environment for UNI international students?

Chances are international students come to UNI from a culture laced with traditions and family values that differ from mainstream American culture.  Imagine the challenges these students face understanding a different language, rules, routine or expected behaviors.  On a daily basis, international students are adjusting to new ways of saying and doing things.  How do we help them bridge this gap and make their transition as smooth as possible?
