International Friendship & Culture Exchange

September 22, 2021
FACE is a semester-long ISSO/OIP program that was developed to provide American and International students structured opportunities to spend time together. Oftentimes, this means that students will meet to partake in small group conversation to share the ideas, customs and concerns of their own respective countries, but it can also include other activities throughout the semester such as team trivia events or informal excursions. The program is semi-structured, which means that participants will be provided with resources to spark great cross cultural conversations, yet participants and their groups decide when to meet and what to talk about. Goals include: encouraging open communication between and among international and U.S. American students; improving awareness and understanding of different cultures; providing international students at UNC Charlotte an opportunity to improve speaking skills and exposure to U.S. culture.
