Bienvenue! Creating a welcoming environment for incoming international students

As universities around the world compete to attract international students, they confront the challenge of how to integrate these students, socially and culturally, into their campus community. Many local students and staff are unprepared to welcome and integrate newcomers from other countries. How can universities better prepare their campus communities? This session will explore this challenge through the real-world experiences of several universities from differing cultural contexts.
