Peer to Peer Perspectives: Restarting Education Abroad
One of the most challenging decisions facing education abroad professionals today is when to “re-open” study abroad programs and student mobility. There is no right answer to the question of when; each institution will need to review mobility options based on established and emerging policies and parameters. Join your peers on the EAKC Subcommittee on Health and Safety for a lively discussion about the factors to consider in the return to travel abroad. To be notified when registration opens, please email the Education Abroad Knowledge Community.
