The ISB Survey identified the need for international students to have more opportunities to engage, on a regular basis, with both International and Australian students outside the academic environment. This led JCU International Student Support team to establish “Cafe International”. It’s an informal event that has become one of the much-anticipated cultural and social activities at JCU. Cafe International is a social event that brings students together and promotes a sense of belonging. The friendships formed during Cafe International are long lasting and have wider repercussions including increased student well-being and increased student retention.
