Building Viable Study Abroad Programs Workshop

9:00 AM, Thursday, December 14, 2017
Student  Center Ballroom A

In the study abroad community, we face many challenges— funding, fears, resources and the list goes on. However, our commitment to inspiring all students to explore the world is unmistakable. The JSU Global’s one day workshop will explore several topics that are critical to helping faculty, staff and administrators build long-lasting study abroad programs that are housed within the university and operate independently of third party companies. This workshop encourages institutions of higher learning to develop programs that are more affordable in cost, but not lacking substance, culture, academics and experiences.
