The Acirema Workshop offered by the Office of Global Education
Thursday, November 17, 2016 10:00AM - 12:00PM Ballroom Balcony, KSC
The Acirema Workshop: it 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.
Applications for the SAGE Project Class of 2017 are NOW OPEN!
The SAGE Project is a way to recognize female and female identifying students who have demonstrated innovation, creativity, risk-taking, and leadership skills in their personal and academic lives. If you know a student who deserves some recognition for their hard work and perseverance, nominate them today! Our goal is to have a diverse group of students whose stories can be used to empower other young women to overcome obstacles and achieve their academic goals!
