A recent study of Ratemyprofessor.com found that students often express linguistic bias against instructors who are non-native English speakers. In this interdisciplinary session, participants are invited to share their challenges and discuss ways to overcome disempowering experiences.

Join us to build community with other international faculty, postdocs, and grad students, and to learn from and with each other. You don't have an international background but are interested in the topic - come join us.

Co-sponsored by TEFD and the Graduate School Office of Professional Development.
