Diversity in the Classroom

Date Released: 27 October 2016

UCITE Session for Thursday, October 27: International Students in the Classroom

One of our core institutional values at CWRU is to strengthen our commitment to internationalization.  

As a result, as a University, we have successfully quadrupled the number of international students entering at the undergraduate level. Also, approximately 25% of the graduate student population is also international students.  

However, the transition into college is no less challenging for international students than for American students who remain in the US.  

At the next UCITE session, Elise Geither (Associate Director of Spoken English Programs) will conduct a student panel to discuss some of the aspects involved with being an international student at CWRU and some classroom techniques that faculty can use in improving student successes.  

Join us on Thursday, October 27th, 2016 from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. in the Herrick Room, which is on the ground floor of the Allen building (at the corner of Adelbert and Euclid). Pizza lunch and sodas will be provided at this session. 

To help us estimate the amount to order, please let us know if you plan to attend this session by replying to this email or sending a message to ucite@case.edu.
