Join faculty, staff and administrators from across campus for the spring 2021 Mission Diploma event!
The goal of Mission Diploma is to identify students who are very close to graduation to recruit back to MSU. For some students, with some adjustments/substitutions, they may be eligible to graduate now.
Mission Diploma focuses on students with 100 or more credit hours completed who have stopped attending MSU. The work we do at this event asks for creativity and thinking outside the box for ways to advance these students toward their graduation goals.
Many who have participated in this event in the past have found the work very rewarding! We have even identified many students who were able to graduate without additional courses!
If you would like to be part of this important event, email email@example.com.
Registration is required as lunch is provided. Those who would like to use Mission Diploma toward two hours of master advisor credit should note this in their email so further instructions can be provided.
Advising International Students from Latin America
Date: Wednesday, April 28
Time: 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.
- Dr. Kelly Cabrera-Hurtado, Coordinator, International Leadership and Training Center
- Dr. Judith Martinez, Assistant Professor, Modern and Classical Languages
- Juan Cabrera, Special Program Outreach Coordinator, English Language Institute
This forum will focus on two main aspects. First, on educational backgrounds in Latin American countries, mainly the three venues/experiences students might have prior to attending MSU. Then, potential cultural challenges and strategies to overcome those in order to better advise international students from Latin America and help our students success on our MSU campus and global community. There will be time for Q & A’s and discussion towards the end.
