Workshop for faculty and staff who interact with international students and scholars

The workshop is titled Crossing Borders: Supporting International Student and Scholar Transition.

Although the thousands of international students and scholars who come to Hopkins have strong academic and professional backgrounds, they still encounter cultural, language, and legal challenges during their transition to the university. Faculty and staff interact daily with these members of our community and can play a key role in their success through recognizing the common challenges that these students and scholars face. This presentation will focus on typical intercultural experiences and provide participants with practical skills for support and advocacy.

The workshop will be led by Scott King, director of International Students in the Office of International Services, in conjunction with International Education Week. It will be offered at the following dates, times, and locations:

  • Homewood: 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., Monday, Nov. 14, Malone Hall 228
  • Medical Institutions: 9:45 to 11:45 a.m., Tuesday, Nov. 15, Wood Basic Science Building, West Lecture Hall
  • Washington, D.C.: 1 to 3 p.m., Thursday, Nov.17, Nitze Building, 1740 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Room 417
