Provides Resources for Faculty & Academic Advisors of International Students
Faculty and academic advisors interact on a regular basis with international students at UNC Charlotte and may at times be caught off-guard by the various learning styles and sets of expectations based upon non-U.S. educational systems. In addition, they may not fully realize the enormous pressure felt by international students due to additional responsibilities such as abiding by immigration regulations, finding part-time work, and living up to family expectations in their home countries.
The ISSO offers a workshop each Fall semester, entitled Immigration 101 which covers some of these topics, and invites anyone who is interested in learning more to attend.
Check out the Powerpoint presentation used in that workshop.
