Tea & Talk - American Individualism

TOPIC: Communicating Across Cultures - Individualists | Collectivist Styles (Jackie Leighton, Director, Davis International Center)

Americans are known as strong individualists. In this session, we will reflect on individualist and collectivist values and how it impacts our communication styles inside and outside the classroom.   

Tea & Talk is an informal weekly discussion group designed for international students, scholars and spouses – focused on issues that are common for adjusting to life in the U.S. and the Princeton campus culture.

Tea & Talk meets every Wednesday. Feel free to attend as many (or as few) as your schedule allows. Come and receive insight from other internationals facing similar situations and challenges or simply have general questions answered about why Americans act a certain way! A light lunch (and of course tea!) will be served at each program.
