Let us come to you! Study abroad alumni or staff can give a brief presentation about study abroad to your students. We'll share a little about our experiences, a few photos, and general information about how to get started. Email [email protected] to request a presentation or you can show students this overview video.

Promotion

One of the most effective ways students learn about study abroad is by hearing about it directly from faculty, staff, or advisors. We hope you're willing to recommend, encourage, and support these opportunities! We don't expect you to know all about study abroad, so please feel free to send students our way. Study Abroad 101 is the first step and is available every Tue. & Wed. at noon (a perfect session for interested students to attend). Students can also watch the Study Abroad 101 video if they are unable to attend the in-person session. If students want to talk with any of our student workers or staff they can schedule a meeting at any time.

Display Promotional Materials

We're happy to provide printed materials for you to display in your office or classrooms. To request promotional materials, contact Stephanie Bartsch.
