Panel discusses international students on TV

Cornell’s Associate Director of Admission Ling Zhang, Professor of Russian Lynne Ikach, and Professor of Computer Science Leon Tabak held a discussion on “Ethical Perspectives on the News” about welcoming international students. Joining them was Shuhui Lin, who works with international students at the University of Iowa.

Tabak said he got the idea for this topic while teaching a course in China.  

“My own experience of adapting to a foreign culture got me to thinking how I might do a better job helping my students from abroad adapt here,” Tabak said. “We talked about how American colleges and universities can give international students the best possible welcome and do the most to assure that international visitors and American students benefit.”

It aired Sunday, June 24, 2018, on KCRG-TV9 and KCRG 9.2.
