Moving Beyond Re-entry: Mapping Career Goals Through Education Abroad

Thursday, October 20
10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Room: Heritage

Education abroad and career services practitioners encourage students to be more deliberate about aligning education abroad with career goals. Traditional re-entry programming is not sufficiently making this connection.  We will share examples on how to reframe the education abroad learning experience through career-focused initiatives.  Participants will explore ways to close the education abroad learning loop and apply career-focused initiatives.
