Discussion session on internationalization of WFU to be held March 16

Faculty and staff are invited to participate in a discussion focused on the internationalization of Wake Forest.  The event offered through the Professional Development Center is called “The Internationalization of the Wake Forest Community: Transcending Campus Spaces by Transforming the Institution.”

It will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. March 16 at Wingate Hall’s Lower Auditorium.  Afterward, a reception will be held until 6 p.m.

The following is a guest post about the discussion session from the sponsors–the Office of the Dean of the College and the International Students and Scholars Division of Global Programs and Studies:

Join colleagues from around the Reynolda Campus as we discuss and expand on the Internationalization of Wake Forest University, particularly our student body.

The past decade has seen rapid growth and change in our campus community, leading to transformative and sometimes challenging experiences in the classroom and throughout campus spaces. As the student body has become more international in scope, so have efforts throughout campus to support our international students and scholars. This session, as part of the College’s MIMA (Maximizing Inclusivity + Minimizing Apathy) series, will present information and knowledge on the experiences of international students and scholars as they seek to become active members of our community and campus climate.

Furthermore, specific classroom and student services best practices will be shared. The session is designed to allow for ample questions and discussion throughout the three-hour workshop, and a reception will immediately follow. As with other MIMA workshops, attendees are welcome to come when they can and stay as long as they can.

Finally, this particular session will be co-sponsored by the International Students and Scholars Division of Global Programs and Studies and the Office of the Dean of the College.
