STUDENT RETENTION AND SUCCESS
May 12, 2016
This summer the International Center will be moving from its current location on Library Walk to transitional locations on campus. The move is a result of several factors including: the growing need to accommodate the number of international students, faculty and scholars the International Center serves; the interior and exterior condition of the building; and the need to acquire more adequate space for increased staffing. After careful review and consideration with many campus entities, offices will temporarily reside in three locations:
· Dean’s Office and Study Abroad: Building 409 (Matthews Quad)
Special programs and services provided by the International Center and affiliated volunteer groups will also continue albeit in modified formats and new locations. This includes:
· International Center Café will commence at the Great Hall located on
the Eleanor Roosevelt campus.
Student and faculty services will remain the highest priority during this transition period. During the summer, the International Center will keep constituents informed of the move via email and website updates. The university is studying the long-term needs of the International Center and will include these needs into its overall capital planning process. We expect that the International Center staff will reside in these locations for approximately five years.
