Brown University is making attempts to increase the support available to international students who enroll at the university. It’s often difficult for students from other parts of the world to adjust to daily life at an American university and thus Brown is undertaking initiatives to improve the available support during the transition to college, during college, and after college.
The students who are championing the initiatives to increase international student support proposed that international students be offered city tours, be assisted with setting up bank accounts and getting cell phones. During the college years of the international students, it was proposed that a language exchange program be established in which native English speakers are paired with international students so that they can both help each other learn the nuances of their respective languages. After graduation, the initiative would help in reaching out to alums around the world in the hope of increasing job finding support globally.
