LA ROCHE COLLEGE TO PARTICIPATE IN FORUM ON INTERNATIONALIZING U.S. COLLEGE CAMPUSES


6/19/2013

PITTSBURGH, June 19, 2013 – La Roche College will participate in the fourth annual EducationUSA Forum in Washington D.C. from June 26 to 28, 2013.

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the EducationUSA Forum will bring together 500 college and university recruitment and admissions professionals with nearly 60 EducationUSA regional educational experts and advisers from around the world. Participants will discuss strategies for helping international students to study in the United States and domestic students to study abroad. La Roche’s Director of International Student Services Natasha Garrett, Ph.D., and International Admissions Counselor Natalie Mitchell will represent the College at the EducationUSA Forum.

“Our presence at the Forum will again demonstrate our commitment to international education and provide us with opportunities for networking with colleagues, international education experts, advisers, embassy representatives and other professionals in the field of international education,” Dr. Garrett said. “We want to continue working with advisers from countries that are represented among the La Roche population, but also expand our recruitment efforts to countries whose students we have not yet hosted, thus increasing the diversity of the La Roche learning community.”

The EducationUSA Forum will offer practical information and strategies to help internationalize U.S. campuses. Workshop sessions, presented by international education experts, U.S. higher education representatives and government officials, will offer unique and valuable information on recruiting and enrolling international students.
