DEI Series: #InternationalStudentProblems - The Politics, Culture, & Struggles

October 22, 2020
8:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Join us as this Homecoming for a discussion on the politics, culture, and struggles of being an international student. We'll talk about the challenges of finding work; adapting to a new language, culture, barriers, and time zones; and coping with issues in the classroom. Participants will take away action items on how to increase inclusion on campus and become more supportive of the international community, as well as tips for international students on how to thrive in their new academic, political, and professional spaces.
