Doctoral Candidates to Present about Challenges Facing International Students

Rehab Alzayer, a doctoral student in Special Education from Saudi Arabia, and Wejdan Felmban, a doctoral student in Educational Psychology, will present "Supporting the International Student in the U.S.: Issues, Challenges, and Possible Adaptation" from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Thursday, April 4, in McKee 282 in the third of a series of Diversity and Equity Brown Bag Seminars hosted by the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences.

In order to combat religious extremism and transform, Saudi Arabia has emphasized scientific education and exposure to international countries such as the United States. However, the international scholarship program can create challenges for some students, particularly women, when they try to succeed in a much more integrated society. This session will provide an extensive picture of Saudi culture. It aims to enhance the awareness and understanding of some challenges that could interfere with learning and teaching and how to better address them.

The seminar is open to all members of the university community.
