This free event is presented by the International Student Centre as part of its ISC Culture Series, intended to help staff and faculty deepen their understanding of, and provide better support to, students from around the world.

The series was previously offered as “brown bag lunch” in-person sessions; it is now conducted as one-hour noontime webinars on Microsoft Teams. Sign up to express interest and receive an email reminder about future events.

The centre has also produced support materials for staff and faculty, including a handbook for incoming international students, tips on understanding their experiences, and a guide to providing them with support outside of the classroom.
