Support for Faculty

Faculty are important mentors for international graduate and professional students as writers, speakers, and language users.

The ELSO faculty are available to support you in your efforts to support international graduate students. We are happy to meet with individual faculty as well as departments to discuss:

  • the linguistic and cultural challenges that international graduate students face, and share resources on second language acquistion, writing strategies, and speaking strategies
  • effective ways to mentor international graduate and professional student writing, including commenting on drafts, guiding students during the writing process, and knowing when and how to address language issues 
  • effective ways to mentor international graduate and professional student speaking, including being inclusive during classroom discussions, guiding students in giving presentations, and developing inclusive team projects
  • resources available to support your students as writers, speakers, and language users
  • approaches for developing inclusive assignments and assessment practices
