    Moving to an unfamiliar environment can be challenging. You may encounter difficulties adapting to unfamiliar teaching styles or getting along with peers endorsing different values and worldviews. As a result, you are particularly vulnerable to developing anxiety, mood and stress-related disorders. Are you aware of the symptoms? Did you know that the University of Michigan- Dearborn provides personal and confidential counseling services?

    Are cultural barriers impacting your academic and nonacademic decisions? Do you know where to turn when you are experiencing issues that impact your safety? Will you know to use available campus resources? We would like to help you understand your rights and responsibilities in the United States and to seek help without fear of repercussion. 

    This workshop is aimed at covering this and more.
