Initial Orientation of Foreign Students. Guidelines.
National Association for Foreign Student Affairs, Cleveland, OH. Field Service Program.
This is a program guide for foreign student advisors and administrators in universities. Foreign students new to the United States should have both initial orientation and long-term continuous orientation. Suggestions for an orientation program are given. A program needs both planning and organization into general, non-academic, and academic categories. A chart is presented designed primarily for the foreign student advisor who has little or no experience with programs of initial orientation. Within the academic and non-academic categories, the chart attempts to diagram a variety of combinations and suggestions. The aim is to provide information about the campus environment and the student's role. Many variations are possible within this framework. Suggestions are also given for financing an orientation program. It is the primary responsibility of the foreign student advisor and others involved in the designing of the program to present the plan to the administrators for their review, and secure total support before the program's implementation. The relevancy of the timing and the ordering of the topics to the students' readiness to learn and adjust are the basic criteria of the program. (Author/EK)
