International Students at SCU Discussion
On Thursday, April 10th, the Global Engagement Office hosted a lunch to discuss international students at SCU.
As we anticipate SCU reaching 1,000 international students by next academic year, this served as an opportunity for GEO to share what is currently happening throughout the University and consider opportunities as part of the University's strategic priority for Global Understanding and Engagement.
The International Students at SCU lunch gathered over 40 individuals from across campus who regularly interact with or support international students. The group discussed an article published in February by The Chronical of Higher Education: International, "Campuses Focus More on Meeting International Students' Needs".
Participants were then asked to reflect and respond to a set of discussion questions. See topics and common themes in responses below:
What are ways in which your area currently engages with international students at SCU?
Guests represented departments across campus that interact with international students in many ways, including:
What structures/communication/collaboration/resources would you like to see the University develop to support work with international students?
What challenges and opportunities do you anticipate with growth of international students that may not exist now?
Thank you to all who attended the lunch and participated in the discussion! Moving forward, GEO plans to have more opportunities for engaging with SCU's growing international student population.
