I. Promoting International Student Success: Campus Wide Advising Strategies
Tuesday, March 22 from 10:30am-12noon
I House Sproul Rooms, 2nd Floor

The goal of this workshop is to promote an inclusive and supportive campus environment towards our growing international undergraduate student population by showcasing the services and advising strategies used to promote student success. Through our collective efforts units across campus can all share in their success.

In a panel discussion, student services staff from campus units, including the Student Learning Center and Transfer, Re-entry & Student Parent Center, will offer case studies that highlight their services and techniques for working with international students. Following the panel, workshop participants will break into small groups to problem-solve a new set of case studies using appropriate and supportive advising strategies.

Please RSVP at https://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=dFphUDAzenltTXZSZzZJTG94Um1UVXc6MQ by Friday, March 18th. For questions, please contact Rebecca Sablo at rsablo@berkeley.edu, Lead International Student Advisor.
