Re-Entry/Transition Seminars. Report on the Wingspread Colloquium.
Marsh, Harriet L.
A workshop designed to investigate the development of guidelines and recommendations for ways to assist foreign students in the United States to return and fulfill needed roles in their countries of origin was held in October 1974. This report discusses the deliberations and conclusions of discussion groups, combining these with relevant excerpts from papers presented as supplementary material. Emphasis is placed on the problem of reentry; an inventory of reentry problems; preparation for reentry; content of transition seminars; details of program planning; evaluation and follow-up; and recommendations for the future. Recommendations suggest: (1) Bring together representatives of some of the current transition-type programs to develop the content and format of transition-type programs to develop the lengths; (2) Establish a national clearinghouse for sharing information about on-going reentry transition programs, their impact, and innovative program ideas; (3) Add "reentry-transition" as a topic to the National Association for Foreign student Affairs Field Service Consultant's Manual; and (4) Provide field service training grants and workshop funds to stimulate interest in reentry-transition programs.
