SUBMIT A PROPOSAL FOR THE INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION WEEK POSTER SESSION!
The Fries Center for Global Studies is now accepting proposals for posters during International Education Week (November 13 – 17). Posters will be presented during lunch on Tuesday November 14th.

We invite students to submit a proposal to share their international experience – including experiences in the United States – to showcase research, internships, academic study, language acquisition, artistic endeavors, and independent work that has an international component. We hope this experience will allow students to connect with one another, to share their knowledge and experience and to grow personally, academically, and professionally through this experience.

The value of sharing what you know through a poster session can have a far-reaching impact. Because of the collaborative nature of this sessions and International Education Week, presenters often find that through the process of sharing their expertise they often gain new insights themselves. Being a presenter is also an excellent way to build your professional résumé and speaker profile. We hope you will consider participating and help fulfill our mission to support students in expanding international opportunities and experiences by sharing what you know with others.

Post-Study Abroad Course

Students who have studied abroad over the past academic should consider a new half-credit course being offered this fall:

CGST 201: Crossing Identities and Borders: Processing Study Abroad
https://iasext.wesleyan.edu/regprod/!wesmaps_page.html?stuid=&facid=NONE&crse=014894&term=1179 .

Research has shown that students make the most of their experiential learning abroad when they are given the opportunity to reflect upon it mindfully. This student-centered seminar will offer returnees from abroad (fall 2016 or spring 2017) the opportunity to do just that: reflect on their personal experience through regular interactions with others who have shared similar experiences. We will meet once a week as a group to discuss readings of general interest, related to identity, borders, culture, and intercultural sensitivity and growth. The goal of this half-credit course is to provide you with the support needed for gaining a deeper understanding of your experience, and for representing this understanding in the way that makes most sense for you (e.g., through an essay, a digital narrative, a work of art).

Inquiries may be sent to Prof. Bernardo Antonio González at agonzalez@wesleyan.edu.

PLEASE NOTE:

1. this class meets on Thursday mornings only
2. the readings are intended to generate discussion
3. success in this course equates to their commitment and participation, to their efforts at processing their own experience in a personally meaningful way; it does NOT equate to conventional notions of mastery
4. this course is really an ideal “capstone” for our majors.
5. this is an ideal way of picking up an extra half credit, stress-free

Welcome from CAPS!

Hey Wesleyan!

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) welcomes you to campus for the 2017-2018 year. We are happy to share with you that, with support from Student Affairs and the President’s Office, we begin this year with additional staff to help meet your needs. We also want to make sure you know what services CAPS provides to the Wesleyan community.

Our team of psychotherapists and doctoral level externs provide individual counseling as well as a variety of groups for students who experience personal difficulties such as grief, anxiety, depression, trauma, adjustment or relationship struggles, or any other issues with which they need support and assistance. Students in crisis or with urgent needs will be able to see someone from our team quickly through daily crisis hours, while those with less urgent issues can typically see a provider within 7-10 days. We also have on-call clinicians available after-hours during the academic year for students who need immediate assistance when our office is closed.

In addition to our diverse team of therapists, we have a number of externs and fellows who are here to work with you. We also have a full-time psychiatric nurse practitioner, Katie Scheinberg, who believes in a client-centered approach that focuses on psychopharmacologic treatment in partnership with therapy.

Information about our all of our staff is available on our website www.wesleyan.edu/caps, but we are happy to introduce three new clinicians on our team (bios below).

To schedule an appointment, call us at 860.685.2910 M-F from 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM. Students can also email us their weekly availability at counseling@wesleyan.edu.

We hope to see you at CAPS!
