Announcing the ISSS Intercultural Workshop Series for Spring 2018

Thursday, December 14, 2017

International Student and Scholar Services is pleased to announce the ISSS Intercultural Workshop Series for Spring 2018. The series includes sessions focused on intercultural competency and skills development as well as "Culture In-Depth" sessions discussing the unique practices, customs, and values of some of the largest international student populations on our campus.

Each session helps UMN staff members gain greater cultural self-awareness, an understanding of the contributions of international students, and communication skills to improve interactions and relationships with international students, staff, and faculty.
