International Student Support Training

Date: Thurs., Nov. 9
Time: 1:00 – 2:30 p.m.

Sponsored by International Student and Scholar Affairs

Target Audience: Faculty and staff who work with international students and want to be more effective in supporting their integration and success at Notre Dame. With more than 1300 international students from 90 countries, we are rich in opportunities to impact and be impacted by their experiences and ideas. In our support of them, we can sometimes lose sight of the added layer of complications and limitations they may experience as an international student in the U.S. The more we can understand those complications, the stronger relationships we build in support for their success. This 90-minute training explores the international student’s journey and the resources we have in place to support them, while also encouraging participants to share their own experiences and work towards a toolbox of strategies for understanding and resourcing our international student population
