Many students at Cal struggle with choosing a major that fits their needs, hopes and passions. What happens if family pressure adds to this struggle? What are some cultural issues that we as staff should be aware of when working with this population? How can we best support students to academically succeed and negotiate family expectations and personal passion? Join us for this interactive session on how to best support this important community at Cal.

In a panel discussion, student services staff who work closely with international students will offer case studies that highlight their services and techniques for working with international students.
