UT Health San Antonio's International Relations Committee, along with the Offices of Academic, Faculty, and Student Affairs and International Services are pleased to have Dr. Milton J. Bennett as this year's International Education Week keynote speaker for UT Health San Antonio. Please join us as Dr. Bennett presents on "Difficult Dialogues: Transforming International Experience into Multicultural Citizenship" this November 9th at noon for this virtual session. Presentation: International programs do more than give a global context to medical practice. They also provide an opportunity for students (and faculty) to develop some skills in intercultural communication — e.g., analyzing cultural context, taking perspective, and adapting behavior. Those skills are not just useful abroad; they are also exactly what we need for living peacefully and productively in a multicultural society. This presentation and discussion will suggest how to use intercultural learning to participate in the “difficult dialogues” of making a multicultural society work. The Webinar will be via Zoom and participants must register in advance. After registering, participants will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. Please do join us if you are interested.
