Description

This research project studies the experiences of non-native English speakers with University Health Services. This is important because communication is a crucial part of healthcare. Previous literature had found that background and culture shape how individuals thank about healthcare overall, and that serious education is needed in order to create more culturally competent healthcare providers. The research project utilized surveys sent out to students in Minnesota State University, Mankato's (MNSU) International Student Association via email. Once all the data was gathered it was analyzed, and it was found that most students who have a first language other than English have had positive experiences with University Health Services.
