OVERVIEW OF THE STANDARDS OF GOOD PRACTICE | 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM

The Forum’s Standards provide a means to assess and ensure quality in all areas of education abroad programming – academic programming, student conduct, resources and personnel and policies and procedures. Using the Standards as a guide, participants will examine practices at their universities or organizations. This workshop will be highly interactive, drawing on case studies and issues of interest to participants. This qualifies as a Forum Certification Workshop.
