Topics throughout the fall to support international students with adjustment to MIT and the U.S. Open to all international students: undergrad, grad, and non-degree students. 

Imposter Phenomenon

Presented by Dr. Maryam Khodadoust in Student Mental Health & Counseling. Do you make excuses about your successes? (“I’m just lucky, was at the right place at the right time, anyone could have done it.” etc). Do you remember every failure and review it like a crime scene--over and over again your head? Do you procrastinate on academic work that matters to you? Have you held back from submitting a paper for publishing or conference or grant? You may be suffering from Imposter Phenomenon. Learn about this phenomenon and strategies to keep it from hijacking your academic experience. 


All sessions will be held virtually over Zoom. Even if you cannot attend the session, if you register, you will receive the slides (a recording may not be possible).
