About the Survey

The Data Committee has been hard at work throughout the year to collect feedback from you regarding the biannual State of the Field Survey. The streamlined 2017 survey has been updated to reflect the changing realities of our ever-growing field and the needs of you, our members. Your contribution is essential. This survey, conducted every 2 years, will ask questions about your institution/organization’s current practices and policies, your challenges and victories. The Forum conducts this survey to identify current practices in the field of education abroad and track how those practices are changing over time. The data collected helps The Forum and your fellow member institutions/organizations to advocate on behalf of the field, improve the quality of education abroad to benefit students, and develop resources that are meaningful and useful to Forum members.
