The university has witnessed significant growth in undergraduate enrollment. This record enrollment includes international undergraduate students from 107 different countries who are enriching UK’s campus with diversity, culture and innovation. Currently, 807 international undergraduate students are on campus, which is a record-breaking 32 percent increase over last year. In 2007 there were only 185 international undergraduate students on UK’s campus, which means enrollment has grown 336 percent since then. Global learning is critical to the success of all students and we have a wealth of resources at our fingertips.
Come join the staff of International Student and Scholar Services as we learn about the challenges and opportunities in developing a globally inclusive classroom. Come prepared to share your own tips for creating an inclusive global learning environment.
Refreshments will be served.
