Graduate Language Assessment and Support (GLAS) Coach Spotlight

Graduate Language Assessment and Support (GLAS) is a free program for international graduate students who wish to improve their English communication and cultural skills.  Take a look at our coach spotlight on Krys Indish!

What do you enjoy about being a GLAS coach?
“I love that no two sessions are alike. The students are such diverse individuals that sometimes I’m kept on my toes.”
What do your students enjoy about the sessions? 
“My students seem to enjoy that all GLAS coaches are so accepting and understanding. I have had students compliment myself or other coaches to me for being so open-minded to their culture.”

Are you interested in trying out GLAS?  Learn more about our program and sign up with our online schedule here (link to https://www.mtu.edu/gradschool/resources-for/students/glas/).
