Success and Growth in the U.S.

In coordination with The Counseling Center and International Student & Scholar Services, Success and Growth in the U.S. is a workshop for international students led by Dr. Nahree Doh.

Begun in Fall 2014, Success and Growth in the U.S. is a 10-week workshop designed to facilitate international students’ adjustment, academic success and personal growth.  The program is run as a closed group of 8 – 10 members.  Members have opportunities to explore and share experiences, discuss different topics, engage in various group activities, and learn useful strategies.

This program will continue into future academic semesters.  Questions about the program can be directed to international@ua.edu; please include “Dr. Doh” in the subject line.
