Writing Across Borders

In the twenty-five minute film, Writing Across Borders, students from a broad array of countries and cultures talk about adapting to writing assignments, requirements, rhetorical styles, and teachers’ expectations in US colleges and universities, and instructors offer advice on helping international students make these adaptations to do their best work. A screening of the film will be followed by a panel discussion with Christine Cozzens, director of the Center for Writing and Speaking, Jennifer Lund, director of the Office of International Education, and several international students.
