This page has resources for faculty and staff who are supporting international students.

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is a great starting point for faculty and staff working with multilingual and multicultural learners in a classroom setting. Its website has a list of on-campus and online resources. It also offers workshops to support faculty and staff with multilingual and multicultural students. Check out CTL's calendar to see what is being offered in the near future.
The Office of International Education periodically offers workshops to faculty and staff which support working with international populations more effectively. These include workshops on verbal and written communication to be more inclusive. We also can offer workshops to provide an overview of the international population at UVM and the services our office provides. These workshop are offered periodically through UVM's Professional Development and Training. They are also available to be presented to departments and other groups by special request. Contact our office at InternationalStudents@uvm.edu to inquire about a workshop for your department or group.
International students are required to follow federal rules and regulations around enrollment, work authorizations, and more during their time at UVM. As an advisor, it can be tough to keep track of it all. Here are some common topics of interest for advisors:
- Full-Time Enrollment - Enrollment requirements and exceptions
- On-Campus Employment - Information about working on-campus
- Curricular Practical Training (CPT) - Work authorization for off-campus internships for F-1 students
- Academic Training (AT) - Work authorization for off-campus internships for J-1 students
Have additional questions about these topics or anything else related to rules and regulations that international students are required to follow? Please feel free to contact us for more information.
Campus partners are often interested in knowing more about employing international students or about the employment opportunities that international students can consider as part of their educational pursuits at UVM. We've put together a quick reference guide that covers the basics of hiring UVM international students. OIE advisors are also happy to answer additional questions about specific opportunities.
