Highlights from the WITESOL Fall Conference 2016:
The members of WITESOL join the community of the University of Wisconsin-Stout as they mourn the loss of international student Hussain Saeed Alnahdi. As an organization of English teaching professionals, we strive to help our students interact in culturally sensitive, peaceful ways. We will continue to do so, and in this honor the memory of one of our students.
WITESOL would like to join the students and faculty at UW-Stout in supporting international students throughout Wisconsin and the U.S. We value their contributions to our colleges, universities, and communities and are committed to their safety and well being in the U.S. Additionally, we support genuine conversations that address issues of race, homophobia, xenophobia and misogyny on our campuses and in our local communities.
