Zhang provided advice and proficiency in the area of Chinese transcript and credential analysis, while Lunders presented with Kristen Albrecht from the University of Missouri on the importance of partnerships between international student advisers and academic advisers working together to assist international students. Leise and Turner, along with Angela Manginelli from AIFS Study Abroad, examined how student diversity is defined at institutional, regional and national levels, demonstrating how USD works to overcome the challenges diverse students encounter when planning a study abroad opportunity.
