International Center for Intercultural Communication at IUPUI welcomes students from Japan
Twenty-two Tsuda College students arrived Saturday, August 2, 2014 to participate in what is now known as the annual Women in Leadership Intensive Summer English Program. The undergraduate students will be here on the IUPUI campus for three weeks to improve their English-language skills while learning more about U.S. culture.
The students will immerse themselves in English-only classes and extracurricular activities offered and organized by the International Center for Intercultural Communication, part of the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI.
Congratulations to ICIC Scholar in Residence Andy Buchenot, whose article "An Alternative to Print-Centric Design for Online Health Literacy: The Redevelopment of a Cancer Information Portal" has been accepted for publication by the Journal of Consumer Health on the Internet and is expected to be published in the December 2014 issue.
