ACM/GLCA International Advisors Roundtable
March 15, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - March 17, 2017 @ 4:00 pm CDT
The fourth meeting of this group will allow time for participants to network, discuss common concerns and share best practices.
From the Organizing Committee:
“This meeting is distinctly different from NAFSA because of the size of our group, the informality of our time together, and because we are all advisors at small, selective, residential, liberal arts colleges working with SEVIS RTI and a relatively small international student population. With respect to budgeting for your office, we anticipate that each person/institution would be responsible for their own travel, accommodations, and some meals.
Past topics included: I-20 Issuance & Verification of Funding; Teaching about Culture; F-1 Status & Academic Advising; Culture & Academic Honesty; Programing with Small Staff/Budgets; Preparing for Crisis; Engaging Legal Counsel; RTI Reporting, CPT, OPT/STEM OPT, employment options, taxes, etc. We hope you will attend but also encourage you to consider presenting on a topic or with other colleagues within ACM and GLCA schools.”
