Develop an action plan for your campus around 4 areas that can help increase international student success.

Providing academic support designed for international students is key to promoting academic success and retention.  It can also be a strategic way to retain international students and build your institution’s reputation among international communities, thereby bolstering recruiting efforts.

Join us in Orlando to develop an action plan to implement or improve your institution's academic and language support services for international students who are non-native English speakers. Our expert instructors will start by giving you a research-based understanding of the support needs of various international student populations, then will focus on 4 key areas:

Academic orientations to help prepare international students for university coursework

Transition courses that combine English support and academic content, including bridge courses and international student writing courses

Providing academic and language support outside the classroom

Utilizing peer mentors as tutors, conversation partners, and cultural brokers
