Watch the recording of our April 7th 2021 panel on Advising Students with Foreign Degrees and Credentials, Hear from the Experts.
This panel brought together experts from three Massachusetts programs with extensive experience working with immigrant and refugee students who have degrees, credentials, and professional experience from other countries. The panel explored the primary challenges and misconceptions students face surrounding foreign credentials, the key questions to ask when advising these students, resources you can access, referrals you can make, and tips for walking students through the credential evaluation process. Our three panelists were Emmanuel Owusu from the African Bridge Network, Analuz Garcia from Northern Essex Community College, and Shinobu Ando from the Asian American Civic Association.
By watching, you will also learn about how you can use the expertise of our panelists to help increase your program’s capacity to do this work, through a free consulting structure supported through the SABES Program Support PD Center.
