    Webinar: Academic Services: Best Practices and Gaps
    November 17th at 2 pm CST
    Greetings from the Journal of International Students!
    I am writing to send you this gentle reminder about our webinar on international students on November 17th at 2 pm CST.

    Our panel of speakers includes:
    Dr. Amir Alakaam, University of North Dakota
    Mr. Emmanuel Akanwa, Central Michigan University
    Dr. Joanna Al-Youssef, University of Nottingham
    Dr. Swathi Ravichandran, Kent State University
    Dr. Nara Martirosyan, Sam Houston State University
    Dr. Tara Madden-Dent, Sierra Nevada College

    Theme: Academic services: Best practices and gaps
    Our speakers will focus on the following three main questions:
    1. What types of academic support services are working well to address the needs and challenges of international students?
    2. What social and curricular resources are missing to assist international students with transition into the US higher education?
    3. What support services do you recommend to the offices of international programs?
    4. How might the changed political/national climate affect support for this student body, and what can we do to counter any adverse challenges?
    We have promoted the event fairly broadly and are expecting a good audience. November 17, 2016 at 2:00 CST.
