Warwick will welcome delegates from universities and students' unions across the country on 6 May 2014, as Warwick hosts a summit to examine how universities and students' unions can best work together to encourage integration between international and domestic students. This year’s theme is ‘Fostering a sense of belonging’.
In its third year now, the 2014 Summit will see the launch of the Warwick/UKCISA publication on integration and their aim is to set up some communities of practice on the day of the Summit so that, working together, they can identify some of the key questions coming from the publication that could be followed up on during the year and reported back on at the next summit.
The Warwick Integration Summit is held on Tuesday 6 May at Warwick, registration opens at 9.30-10am and the Summit will end at 4.30pm.
Leading academics and practitioners will be brought together to discuss the latest thinking in this challenging area. Speakers include Professor Helen Spencer-Oatey, Director of Warwick’s Centre for Applied Linguistics and author of Intercultural Interaction and Culturally Speaking, Dr Joseph Shaules, Director of the Japan Intercultural Institute and author of ‘Deep Culture’, Baroness Usha Prashar MBE, President of UKCISA and Daniel Stevens, International Students’ Officer at the NUS and former president of Warwick Students’ Union.
