The end of the year is a good time to review whether your school is using the best possible strategies to manage your international program and policies. Is your program student-centered? Does it meet the various needs of your international students, domestic students, families, faculty, and staff?

This webinar will help your International Program Team learn how to review the past year's successes and identify areas for improvement. Focus on the key elements of your program while staying mindful of your program’s goals and the school's mission. Did your program stay true to its purpose? Did it serve your school as a whole?
