NEW! Acirema Workshop

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

Kent Student Center Ballroom Balcony | 3-5PM

 

The Office of Global Education Acirema Workshop includes a simulation exercise designed to sensitize participants to the difficulties that international students encounter in their quest for a U.S. education. It acquaints the participants with the procedures and obstacles students must follow from the initial contact with a U.S. educational institution to their arrival on campus, and even issues that students face after arriving. A facilitated discussion takes place after the simulation to address the specific issues at stake. We highly recommend attending this workshop!
