As a university adviser, do you:

  • Work with international students who struggle with academic genres or tasks like class participation, exams, oral presentations, writing assignments and group projects due to lack of familiarity with American university expectations?
  • Know international students who could benefit from assistance with pronunciation, everyday conversation, presentations, and job/internship interview skills in English?
  • Want additional strategies for effective intercultural communication with international students? 

If so, EPPIC offers:

  • Language support services for international students (undergraduate and graduate)
  • Workshops that address strategies for working and communicating successfully with international students, or related topics of interest.  We encourage you to contact us with your questions and challenges, so that we may work together to design customized programming that will best address your needs.
