D. Love, A. Gavassa

American University of Sharjah (UNITED ARAB EMIRATES)
This study examines communication between Arab university students from 16 countries and first year faculty from six western countries in the United Arab Emirates. Emergent themes from participant-observations and interviews include cultural messages influencing faculty communication and four communication strategies employed by students. Results are examined in relation to anxiety/uncertainty management theory and student learning.
