The workshop is designed for those responsible for developing, managing, assessing and improving education abroad programs. Participants are expected to have familiarity with either hosting or sending students on education abroad programs. Professionals who may benefit from attending include study abroad administrators, study abroad advisors, faculty who lead programs, risk managers, and colleagues who run campus internship programs and volunteer offices. The goal of this workshop is to assist participants in developing custom plans and protocols in accordance with Standard 8 of The Forum’s Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad. This workshop will train participants to assess and improve programs they either operate or send students on by using the Standards with a specific focus on issues surrounding health and safety. The workshop includes interactive exercises, much discussion and an opportunity to create and critique different aspects of emergency action protocols. Participants will discuss different aspects of handling common health and safety concerns, and understand how the Standards of Good Practice support their own program management and goals.

Facilitator: Natalie Mello (The Forum on Education Abroad)
