Workshop on Academic Challenges and Cultural Identities for Chinese Students in the US

Thursday, October 12, 2017 at 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

Orozco Room, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall 66 West 12th Street, Room A712, New York, NY 10011

With the rapidly increasing population of Chinese international students at The New School in the past few years, there are equally growing needs to recognize academic challenges and cultural identities of this student community. This work therefore intends to bring TNS Chinese international students together to discuss and address these significant challenges that they encounter in academia and everyday life, such as educational and cultural adaptations and adjustments to a new foreign country, racial and cultural identity crises in the US, life-study balance and mental-psychological well-being. At the end of the workshop, student participants will be asked to brainstorm and find out tips and solutions for each other. All Chinese students who are interested in these topics are welcome to the workshop.
