The Forum’s 13th Annual Conference focuses on the student’s education abroad experience.

Ideally, the education abroad experience is a continuum that begins long before the student arrives in the host country and carries on after their return, integrating the academic and experiential, supported by fair policies and ethical programming. While this ideal of a continuum may not be the reality for all students, education abroad can take practical steps toward achieving it.

  • How can students make connections between their experience abroad and their lives at home—before, during, and after their time abroad?
  • How can we facilitate the integration of the education abroad experience into students’ personal development, academic curriculum, and future career?
  • What can we do to ensure that we alongside our students build reciprocal relationships with the host community that are respectful, sustainable, and mutually beneficial?
  • What strategies can we use to identify and address existing gaps in the continuum, which may occur before, during, or after the education abroad experience?

The Forum’s 13th Annual Conference seeks to address these and other questions unique to education abroad.
