CAPE International Student Initiative

Major/Career Planning & Development

The Center for Academic Planning and Exploration (CAPE) created an Academic and Career Coach position with an international focus. This new role provides support for international students who are strongly undecided, transitioning colleges, and planning for competitive majors. This position splits time between CAPE and International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) which allows expanded support in CAPE while remaining closely connected to the student services in ISSS and immigration regulations. The coach will increase capacity to better serve international students by collecting data on their unique needs, working with students through individual coaching at CAPE and ISSS locations, tailoring CAPE curriculum and programs to meet the needs of international students, assisting ISSS with student immigration advising, and increasing outreach and direct marketing to international students.
