Emeriti are needed to help grade the CESP (Clemson English Speaking Proficient) test the first of each semester. This test assesses international graduate students’ readiness to serve as TA’s in the classroom. Emeriti are also needed to work one-on-one with international students through the Conversation with International Students (CIS) program. This requires about an hour each week and is a most rewarding undertaking. For information, see the program brochure here. To participate in either of these programs, contact the Director Smathers (firstname.lastname@example.org).
