Effective Strategies for Supporting International Students on Campus
Facilitated by Dr. Raja Gopal Bhattar
Monday, April 20, 2:00pm-3:30pm, Argyros Forum 209C
International students bring significant knowledge and insights to our campus yet often feel alienated from classroom discussions, campus involvement and other opportunities. This interactive workshop will provide more intersectional understandings of who international students are and challenge us to question monolithic representations of this population. We will also share campus resources and individual strategies to enhance sense of belonging and connectedness across campus. The session will be presented by Dr. Raja Gopal Bhattar, whose work centers qualitative and quantitative approaches to intersectional identity development and the experiences of people of color, LGBTQ people, immigrants, first-generation students, Desi/South Asian students, and international students in higher education. Sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and International Student Services. RSVP for Effective Strategies for Supporting International Students on Campus. Contact Erin Pullin with any questions.
