Tips for Faculty


Consider adding a welcoming and supportive statement to your syllabus or on Canvas:

”Tulane welcomes students from around the country and the world, and their unique perspectives enrich our learning community. This semester, some international students are facing unique challenges related to time zone differences, visas, travel restrictions, etc. If you feel like your performance in the class is being impacted by your experiences outside of class, please don't hesitate to come and talk with me. To support students whose primary language is not English, services are available on campus including language classes and individual appointments. For more information, contact the English for Academic and Professional Purposes Program at The Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) is also a resource for international students and the larger Tulane community.
