Fall 2014 Carolina Intercultural training seminars

Did you know that the University of South Carolina hosts more than 1,300 international students from over 100 countries? Many of these students arrive at USC not knowing anyone and often struggle to find community and develop friendships on campus.

This year, the International Student Services office will continue their new program, “Carolina Intercultural Training”, which aims to help ease cultural clashes, miscommunication and prejudices. Similar to “Safe Zone” and “Green Zone” trainings, participants who complete this “International Friendly Zone” program will receive a certificate and will be better equipped to promote and provide an inclusive environment on campus for international students, in addition to preparing themselves for international experiences of their own.

There are three training opportunities this fall for the program. We encourage you to attend this cross-cultural training and join with us in promoting inclusivity for USC’s diverse population.

With any questions about the program, feel free to contact Sylvain Chabra at chabras@mailbox.sc.edu.
