The Forum is pleased to announce a new resource, Advocating for Student Safety Abroad: Working Together at Home and Abroad. This document, developed by a Forum Council Advocacy Committee Working Group chaired by Christina Carroll of Florida State University, provides key talking points about student health and safety abroad intended to be used as a springboard for discussion with parents, students, campus administrators, and the general public. This advocacy tool is intended to assist Forum members to educate others about how the education abroad field strives to help ensure student health and safety abroad.
All annual conference attendees will receive a hard copy of this resource, and it will be discussed at a conference session on Friday morning, April 8. Please contact The Forum at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in additional copies.
