Event Description

Please note the change of venue.  Due to demand, we moved this to a larger room (Wolf Law, room 300).

This webinar is co-sponsored by the Office of International Education (OIE) and the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Community Engagement (ODECE).  It will broadly examine the key issues regarding international student enrollment in the US. Dr. Lee will present the latest research on the major academic and social challenges that international students encounter in the US as well as findings from her own work on "neo-racism," discrimination against "foreigners" and the effects of such mistreatment on the future of international education. The webinar will also include suggested practices to improve international student success and implications for future recruitment.
