Event Description

Provide Positive Experiences for International Students in Their First Year and Beyond

International students play an important role in improving enrollment and financial stability for post-secondary institutions across the country. But the current state of politics is making some in this group feel unwelcome and unsure of what positive educational experience they will have on campus. Your school can do a lot to make them feel included, but pinpointing what that is won’t be easy.

Join educational consultant Jerald Henderson in this information-packed webinar as he reveals how you can understand the political and social issues involved with recruiting and retaining international students. He’ll show you how to create a toolbox of strategies which you can put to use to recruit international students and create great educational experiences once they enroll.

Henderson will walk you through special orientation programs for international students, including cultural ‘days’ to promote and inform students on campus about international students. He will provide valuable insights on peer academic advising, and show you how to establish learning communities, study groups, clubs and campus student organizations.

The benefits of this program include a better awareness of the challenges and needs of international students, insight into effective recruiting of international students, and improved understanding of programs and best practices that can be used to help international students feel welcome and comfortable on campus. These students are valuable both for your bottom line and for student body diversity—learn how to attract them to your school and keep them once they are there.
