From Surviving to Thriving: Ensuring that We Support the Whole International Student
This event will be recorded.
Book signing to follow.
This salon was made possible by generous contributions from Fogler Library donors, and the co-sponsorship of CITL (Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning), SPIA (School of Policy and International Affairs) , OIP (Office of International Programs), and the Honors College.
The global events of recent years — an ongoing pandemic, ruptured education systems, growing nationalism worldwide, and a renewed social justice movement — have called for a sea-change and re-imagining of academia’s mission and work with international students, as well as the central role they play in building global bridges and fostering global engagement. Please join Orlina Boteva, Director of the Office of International Programs, and Dr. Karen Pelletreau, CITL Director of Faculty Educational Development, in a conversation with Dr. Rajika Bhandari, author of the award-winning memoir, America Calling: A Foreign Student in a Country of Possibility, a spring 2024 CITL book club title. Dr. Bhandari will share her extensive experience as an international higher education expert and her personal and professional insights on attracting international students; serving and aligning their needs with campus diversity and inclusion efforts; and positioning them for success.
