University Orientation Class for International Student-Athletes

International students represent an ever-growing population on collegiate campuses, and the student-athlete body is no exception. Unfortunately, many international student-athletes arrive on American campuses in sporting and academic environments where little support is provided for them. Therefore, using focus groups of international student-athletes and their coaches, this project developed and delivered an academic orientation class specifically for international student-athletes. A “How To” guide was created to assist those at other college campuses interested in replicating the program.
