Study Abroad Compass is an initiative created by Study Abroad. The aim of this initiative is to bridge together the different phases of studying abroad (i.e. advising, recruiting, pre-departure, studying abroad, re-entry to campus) in such a way that they become connected and integrated into a seamless experience. Since your experience of studying internationally is a journey, the Study Abroad Compass will help guide you, providing directions along the way in engaging, informative, and innovative ways.
As part of the Study Abroad Compass an online advising course was developed for all students that are considering studying abroad. The course, titled Study Abroad 101, can be accessed here and can earn you a Certificate of Completion.
Study Abroad is in the process of developing brand-new pre-departure and re-entry programming, such as the Study Abroad Pre-Departure Sakai Course and professional development seminars in conjunction with other units on campus. Stay tuned to find out more.
