The Forum is working to update the Guidelines series to keep pace with changes in the field and education abroad practices. Each set of guidelines is being revised with input from members of the Forum Council, Standards Committee, staff, and advisors with specialized experience. Guidelines are intended to be used in conjunction with the Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad to address the specific needs and challenges presented by particular types of education abroad experiences.
The Guidelines for Community Engagement, Service-Learning, and Volunteer Experiences Abroad are now available for open comment. We encourage sharing the draft widely, including to professionals from outside of the field of education abroad with relevant experience. Comments will be accepted until 5 p.m. EST on January 22.
