The International Student Experience Resource Guide was launched in March 2019 to supplement a discussion session focusing on the stories and experiences of international students at Berklee College and the Boston Conservatory at Berklee. Sponsored by the Liberal Arts Department, this session, Journeys: International Students Tell Their Stories, grew out of a need to better understand and to better serve the vital and growing population of global learners at Berklee.
