Description

Have you been working with students who have degrees and credentials from other countries, but want to serve them better? Are you looking to develop your skills and understandings to incorporate a student’s past education or professional experience into their pathway? Through a hands-on activity based on real-life scenarios, you will explore and apply successful strategies for helping students navigate U.S. higher education, negotiate the challenging world of U.S. employment, and overcome barriers to securing jobs in their field. By working through real-life student scenarios, you will deepen your understanding of the questions to ask, the resources available, and the referrals to make. 

We will introduce new tools and ask you to share the strategies and tools you use. We will make sure you understand the resources, including community and state resources, available to support this population.
