Symposium for Educators of International Students in Maine Nov. 1

The University of Maine College of Education and Human Development will host the third Symposium for Educators of International Students in Maine from 8:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1 at the Buchanan Alumni House on the Orono campus.

The professional development conference will focus on issues related to the education of international students attending Maine high schools.

Teachers, counselors and administrators of schools with international students, as well as University of Maine faculty and students, are invited to the free event.

Aretha Marbley, visiting professor from Texas Tech University, will deliver the keynote. Breakout sessions will address topics such as dating and relationship customs, the perceived pressure for international students to attend Ivy League universities, and increasing competence as multicultural educators.

At 11:30 a.m., a panel of international students from local high schools will answer questions about their experiences coming to Maine. International UMaine students will also perform musical presentations throughout the day.

Registration is online. For more information, or to request a disability accommodation, contact Roxanne Lee at 207.581.2412 or
