This year’s conference theme is Study Abroad Just Wants to Have Fun? and sessions are focused on five sub-themes: Social Media, Academics, Professional Development, Health & Safety, and General Best Practices. Are we practicing what we preach? How do we put the academic focus back into study abroad? For professionals: How do you advocate for yourself as a professional? Site visits are a lot of work, not just fun.
We truly look forward to hearing from our community and encourage you to submit your session proposal by 5PM on Friday, March 29.
