Dear Faculty Colleagues,
We hope your semester is off to a great start! The Office of Advising & Co-Curricular Programs has put together some information and resources that we hope will be helpful as you navigate the next few weeks of the semester.
The information about course requirements and considerations for students interested in applying to medical, dental, veterinary or optometry school can be accessed HERE!
The online magazine Global Expressions: Writing Beyond the Mother Tongue is calling for paper submissions. Especially, if you are teaching a writing class, please encourage your multi-language students to submit their second language writings or become a contributor to the magazine.
If you have first-year multi-language students as your advisees, you should have received a copy of students’s EAP placement test report with advising suggestions last month. If you have any questions or would like to discuss more, please feel free to contact.
When advising international students, cultural differences as well as communication barriers can make it challenging for both student and advisor. Please check out a sample advising syllabus developed for Lafayette advisors and some tips summarized for successful communication with international students. You can also find teaching suggestions for working with multilingual students posted on the center’s website.
Please contact Tingting Kang at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
