Description

Being International at Barnard: A Panel Discussion on Teaching, Learning, and Institutional Belonging

Over ten percent of Barnard students are international and/or multilingual. That’s a large percentage of the student population in all classrooms across the disciplines. But how is Barnard serving this population, and what can Barnard do better? Through a discussion centering Barnard international students, this panel provides a transnational perspective on diversity and inclusion efforts on campus, helping to envision classroom practices that embrace both the shared and contradictory experiences of Barnard international students.

All Barnard students, staff, and faculty are welcome. Food and drinks will be served.

Vrinda Condillac | Lecturer in First-Year Writing
Tasneem Ebrahim | Writing Fellow (BC '20)
Ana Lam | Writing Fellow (BC '20)
Timea Szell | Senior Lecturer in English & Director of Creative Writing (BC '75)


Moderators
