One of our core institutional values at Case Western Reserve University is to strengthen our commitment to internationalization.
As a result, as a university, we have successfully quadrupled the number of international students entering at the undergraduate level. In addition, approximately 25 percent of the graduate student population is also international students.
However, the transition into college is no less challenging for international students than for American students who remain in the U.S.
At the next University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education session, Elise Geither, associate director of Spoken English Programs, will conduct a student panel to discuss some of the aspects involved with being an international student at CWRU. They also will cover some classroom techniques that faculty can use in improving student successes.
The session will be held Thursday, Oct. 27, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Allen Memorial Medical Library’s Herrick Room (use Adelbert Road doors).
