Description

With a 32 percent increase in international student enrollment over the past decade, the importance of providing an orientation specifically tailored for international students has become a priority in higher education.

Empowering students to serve as "cultural peer mentors" can help integrate international students into the campus community. At the same time, a strong cultural mentor program reduces orientation staff workload and improves the overall experience of the international student welcome process and orientation.

Join us online to learn how you can utilize a team of peer "cultural mentors" to make your international student orientation and welcome activities more efficient and meaningful.

This program is ideal for directors, assistant directors, associate directors, and coordinators of international student services and orientation programs, and any other individuals responsible for coordinating the details of international student welcome, orientation, and support services.
