Whenever education abroad professionals gather, we learn from each other through the experiences we relate and stories we tell. Forum Storytellers is a project to preserve the stories of education abroad, and share them with colleagues – past, present and future.

Forum Storytellers acknowledges the value of the human side of the education abroad profession, brings to light narratives that might not otherwise be shared widely, and preserves an oral history of the field of education abroad.

Tell us about how you found your way into the field, pivotal moments in your career, lessons that you have learned, challenges you have faced, tales of personal triumphs, and share reflections on the profession.

We seek voices that represent the diversity of the education abroad field, based in the U.S. and overseas, at home institutions, host institutions and program provider organizations.

The Forum on Education Abroad invites you to create an audio recording of your story with the help of an interviewer—a friend or colleague who knows you well. We will archive your interview in the AIFS/AIFS Foundation Education Abroad Special Collection. It might also be included in the Forum Storytellers podcast, which will be available at no cost on iTunes and on The Forum website.
