0

Ten Media & Communication Studies (MCS) international students met on May 31 for the launch of a student mentor program that connects students with faculty members.  IAS faculty member Min Tang, who spearheaded the program, and Kristin Gustafson, faculty coordinator for the MCS Curriculum Area Working Group, held a roundtable discussion where students shared their experiences, questions, challenges, and support they would like to have from MCS and IAS.  The conversation ranged from global media scholarships to professional work and internship opportunities to favorite learning strategies.  The group brainstormed on next steps.  Students and faculty members who would like to know more about the MCS International Student Mentor Program should email Min Tang.
