ISSS organizes cross-cultural discussion groups which often consist of both international and U.S. students. Members of these groups meet once a week to share cross-cultural experiences, personal thoughts, and feelings in a relaxed atmosphere. Examples of the topics discussed in the past are culture shock, cultural customs, friendship/relationships, communication styles, family, and future aspirations. For more than 30 years ISSS has facilitated cross-cultural discussion groups with participants from dozens of countries throughout the world.
International and U.S. students are invited to join our new cross-cultural discussion groups for the Spring 2015 semester. Several discussion groups will be formed—each with a consistent meeting time. The groups will begin mid-February and continue through early May 2015.
Each group will have two leaders with group facilitation experience. To join a discussion group, you must:
(1) submit an online application, by Monday, February 9; and
(2) complete an individual interview with an ISSS staff person.
After ISSS receives your application, you will be contacted to arrange an interview.
Spring 2015 registration is now closed.
