Webinar #3: "Integrating International Students: The Role of Data, Relationships, and Tenacity e/strong>
Friday, November 11, 12:00-1:00 pm, Board Room
Barbara Kappler Mikk, Ph.D., Assistant Dean, International Student & Scholar Services, Global Programs and Strategy Alliance, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities; Beth Isensee, M.A., Assistant Director, Student Engagement and Intercultural Initiatives, International Student & Scholar Services, Global Programs and Strategy Alliance, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities
At the University of Minnesota, ISSS has taken the lead on institutionalizing a focus on international student needs and experiences. Through numerous campus partnerships and data and research, they have achieved significant positive outcomes through several initiatives, including these highlights:
Consulting and connecting departments with existing resources (Culture Corps, academic enhancement fee, international student advisory board)
Drawing attention to students' desire for a sense of belonging
Identifying integration in the classroom as a campus priority
Enhancing campus-wide outreach to new students (i-prep, academic integrity)
The impacts have been significant. The data and research projects have helped create awareness of international student experiences and direct campus priorities to improve international student experiences, including the integration of students. This work takes tenacity, building relationships, and harnessing the power of data.
