IPC’s Tip for Community Building

On the last Friday of every month, the International Programs Center staff gets together for a community building exercise. Staff members from the Lloyd International Honors College and INTERLINK also participate. This month's community building included recognition of all staff who had a birthday in October, which included music, food and refreshments, and an informal social atmosphere where staff members had the opportunity to get to know each other.

The Halloween theme was complete with balloons, streamers, creepy spiders, skeletons, and pumpkin spice lattes. Everyone enjoyed the relaxed atmostphere and had a great time discussing Halloween traditions from around the world and costume ideas.

The highlight: Pumpkin lattes!

IPC Staff attend NCAIE Fall Professional Workshop by Kaitlin Ritchie

On October 8 several staff members from IPC traveled to Meredith College to attend the North Carolina Association of International Educators (NCAIE) Fall Professional Development Workshops.  As I recently joined the IPC team, this workshop was my first opportunity for professional development as the Incoming Exchange Coordinator. Other staff members who embraced their first professional workshop are Kavita Gosai, Rebecca Conley, and Techeeyaw Anderson. Tom Martinek, Jr., Lindsay Armistead, Logan Stanfield, and Christina Thompson also attended the workshop.

The workshops covered information on international exchange student and degree-seeking student non-immigration documents. By attending the J-1 Workshop, I was able to broaden my understanding of the international programs field and international exchange student requirements. This experience also opened up opportunities to meet and collaborate with other international education professionals from many college campuses across North Carolina. I thank IPC for giving me the opportunity to attend the conference!
