Relaxed Public Speaking Group

The Relaxed Public Speaking Group, spearheaded by the International Committee, meets once a month to practice speaking in a casual setting and receive feedback. The meetings provide an opportunity for participants to build confidence and skills in public speaking. It’s also a great opportunity to practice English. All students, postdocs, faculty, and staff are welcome.

Immigrant Stories 

The International Committee sponsors the Immigrant Stories “Everyone is Included in our Community!”, a virtual storytelling series, where colleagues across the UMass Chan enterprise share their journey to America and UMass Chan Medical School.
