About the conference: Education Abroad at a Crossroads: Actions for a Sustainable Future

Education Abroad has the potential to make a transformative impact on a student’s personal, academic, cultural, and professional trajectory. However, education abroad impacts much more than the participants: home and host communities and institutions, local economies, partners, faculty and program leaders, and the environment all feel the effects of our growing global industry.

Let’s gather as a field to consider the viability of education abroad and the sustainability of our actions as humans on the planet.  How do we value reciprocity and build sustainable and mutually-beneficial relationships? How do we sustain the deep and emotional impact of the experience on students in order to enact positive change on their home campuses and communities?

The generation that is preparing to study abroad will one day be called upon to solve the global problems of the 21st century, and their international experiences have the power to prepare them for the challenges ahead.
