Supporting International Students’ Academic Success Series

Campus Support Services: Observations from Staff Providing International Student Support

1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Abby Mitchell,
UNL has over 1,500 international students from over 130 different countries who enrich our campus community in a variety of ways. They bring a unique set of circumstances and experiences that can influence how they learn in the classroom. How can instructors best utilize the strengths of international students and help them to be as successful in the classroom as possible? The International Student and Scholar Office (ISSO) and the Center for Transformative Teaching (CTT) invite you to a series of panels designed to help instructors best support the learning and academic success of international students. All panels will be on Zoom.

A panel of experts from various offices around campus who work with international students will discuss common issues international students face, such as getting a visa, finding transportation, and homesickness. They will discuss what resources are available to support international students inside and outside of the classroom so instructors can better understand their students and help connect students with the relevant resources. There will be time for a Q & A.
