This workshop is designed to facilitate new international graduate students' acclimation into American higher education. The workshop consists of participant-centered discussions, overview of academic practices in American universities-including classroom practices, research, technology, teaching, and various support systems- and sharing of experience and success stories by current students. This interactive event will also help international students reflect on the academic culture in their home countries and consider how they can "incorporate" the ideas, skills, experiences, and perspectives that they bring from those backgrounds in order to perform their best while "transitioning" into the new system.
