As many of you know, our F-1 international students have been experiencing tremendous and unnecessary stress this summer caused by ever-changing government regulations. The Office of International Programs (OIP) has been closely monitoring the evolving situation and interpreting policies for students, faculty, and staff.

Traci Johnson, Assistant Director of International Programs and primary international student advisor, has been working to ensure that each F-1 student at Meredith feels supported academically, socially, and emotionally.

If you have any questions about F-1 international students in the future, please feel free to connect with Traci at email@example.com.
