Addressing challenges faced by immigrants
International students and employees in the IU community face many unique challenges, from navigating policies and procedures that their management may struggle to understand, to enduring career suppression because of fear that they may not remain with the university. We plan to work with the IU community to identify these challenges and to make recommendations for improvements in the international staff experience and career paths, to create training material for supervisors, and to provide resources to support international staff and their supervisors.
Initiative's ultimate goal
We hope that by identifying challenges and writing up recommendations to address these challenges, this initiative will ultimately preserve, grow, and protect the international community presence in IT at IU.
