New MTU Lode website for: "On college campuses across the country, there is a growing schism between American and international students, as well as between students of different backgrounds in general. At least that is what MTU Writing Center director Sylvia Matthews has been reading. Such reports are in sharp contrast though to the reality that Matthews sees every day in the Writing Center - students of different backgrounds, and often different nationalities, coming together to learn about each other and each other’s culture, with obvious interest.
As Matthews says, “There are always a lot of wonderful collaborations going on.” And never more so than over these past few weeks.
Matthews, along with Writing Center head Nancy Grimm and the Center's student coaches, have been gearing up these last few weeks for the first annual International Writing Centers week."
