Intercultural Communication Center Summer 2014 Schedule
During the summer ICC offers classes only during session I, May 19 to June 27 (in July our staff works full-time in an intensive summer program for incoming students). ITAs in Restricted I or II who need to complete 15 hours of ICC work must do so during session I even if they will TA in session II.

Students who have completed a check-in and are on the ICC mailing list will get weekly notices about all seminars, as well as announcements about workshops that are appropriate for each student (generally based on TOEFL speaking or ITA test scores). Additional sections of workshops/seminars (and possibly new seminars) will be added continuously throughout the semester to meet student needs. The website will be periodically updated to reflect changes.

Registration is required for all workshops and seminars. To register, respond to the email notices from eslhelp @ andrew.cmu.edu, call the ICC at x8-4979, send email to eslhelp @ andrew.cmu.edu, or visit our office in Warner Hall 308.

The following link provides guidelines to help students better understand what is expected of participants in ICC workshops and seminars.
