Taylor Symposium: It’s Not Foreign. It’s U.S.
Campus Center Theater
As a nation of immigrants, the U.S. is one of the most diverse societies in the world. Yet, history and modern times are rife with examples of cultural misunderstandings that stand in the way of a truly integrated society. Language is the key to overcoming moments of difficulty, facilitating the transition of new Americans, and bringing harmony to our remarkable mosaic of cultural traditions and experiences.

You are from the country of Acirema (America spelled backwards), and want to pursue your degree in the United States. Can you navigate the process of applying for admission, obtaining your passport and visa, and passing through Customs and Immigration at the airport without giving up? This simulation will put in you the shoes of international students, and help you gain an understanding of the challenges they face in coming to America. The simulation is followed by a debriefing session to talk about your experience, and best practices for supporting international students.
