The Vermont Connection


Andrew M. Wells


With large numbers of international students enrolled on our campuses, it is important for student affairs practitioners to be prepared to work with this student population and address their needs. Programs should be put in place to tackle their transition issues as well as help students deal with culture shock and culture learning. In this paper, I will conduct an analysis of the literature on intercultural adaptation and counseling to identify the issues faced by this group and inform suggestions for practice.
