Fordham’s Institute of American Language and Culture (IALC), part of the University’s ESL program, held its inaugural Summer Institute, a 10-day language immersion program where international students take English classes in the morning and join guided excursions throughout New York in the afternoons and evenings.
The theme of the program was “Think Globally, Act Locally,” and classes led by instructor Mr. Todd Motto dealt with topics related to urbanism, social inclusion, pop culture, race and gender, and arts and technology. Suihan Zhang acted as program coordinator.
The institute hosted six students from from Northwestern Polytechnical University in China from July 17 to July 26.
