Supporting Inclusive Excellence with International Student Services

International Students

Course Description

International students are an integral component of campus internationalization. In what ways can we support international students through inclusive excellence?

This e-learning course identifies the needs of international students in US higher education and explores ways in which to educate and affirm them in their exploration of race, sexual identity, gender variance, and health/wellness.

Through this course, you will:

  • Learn the role of international educators (listen, learn, partner, educate)
  • Be better equipped to address how to support international students navigating a balance of cultural preservation and cultural immersion
  • Learn how Care’s Women’s Empowerment and Critical Race Theory can inform the way we think about international student’s experiences

Please note that all Diversity Abroad Short Courses are available for 7 days after purchase. Check out our Frequently Asked Questions for additional information.
