In addition to the concerns all students held due to COVID-19, international students had to respond to frequently changing immigration regulations, questions of whether to travel to their home country or stay in the U.S., and fear due to increased instances of xenophobia and anti-Asian hate. To help, I coordinated an ongoing communications plan for ISSS that used dedicated web pages, emails, videos, and webinars to share information.
In addition to materials created for international students, this plan also included updates for UMN staff and departments about the need to communicate with international students.
