The Advisory Group on the Status of International Communities, co-chaired by Jodi Hicks, Overseas Program Manager in the Center for Global Education, and Charlene Baldwin, Dean of the Leatherby Libraries, is taking quick action on some of its short-term goals this semester. This includes the continuation of two programs, Windows of the World and International Education week. International Student & Scholar Services is also now offering more workshops for international students such as American Culture and Navigating the American Classroom to help facilitate the college experience for international students at Chapman.

Looking ahead, the group hopes to move forward on initiatives that will have higher financial implications. They are creating proposals for other shorter term goals that will include steps, financial implications, and assessment. Their goal is that more items can be implemented within the next year such as an improved Orientation for international students and students with U.S. passports who grew up overseas, as well as creating an emergency fund for international students.

“We are excited to have new voices in our group this semester, especially of international students who bring a wealth of knowledge and experiences. Graduate students make up the same numbers or even higher numbers of international students, and we must work on making them part of the Chapman community and successful here. A specialized ESL tutor based in the writing center is a high priority for us and will be very useful for graduate international students. Some members will join the Multicultural Sub Committee for input on this center addressing needs of international communities.” –Jodi Hicks
