“Whitworth [University] chose to host a customized training because I wanted specific information to be shared with our faculty. The training was primarily for our faculty who either lead or might lead programs, but the study abroad staff also attended. I wanted our faculty to get a better idea of what the professional field of study abroad looks like and that I don’t recommend policies and best practices in a vacuum. About 14 people attended and the consensus was that it was a very worthwhile event. A wonderful outcome was increased appreciation for the field, the Standards of Good Practice and all the resources that go with them. For me though, the best outcome was that a chemistry professor who had never led a program abroad before, was inspired and encouraged enough to propose one. It was accepted, and she already has students signed up to go.”
