Encouraging Spontaneous Social Experiences

Dan Montour, program coordinator for global engagement at the Office of International Affairs, heads the English Conversation Program (ECP) and organized this event to give students a space and context for a spontaneous social experience.

Ultimately, Montour hopes that “Social Sips” will encourage domestic and international students to feel more comfortable engaging in conversation.

“We want ‘Social Sips’ to help students develop face-to-face interpersonal skills and increase engagement across all backgrounds on campus,” said Montour.
