In this one hour interactive dialogue, the Taylor Center and the Office of Study Abroad will guide you on creating a study abroad experience that goes deeper than getting that perfect wanderlust photo. How does one engage authentically with their host country? How does one become a global citizen and not just a tourist? How does one engage with self-development and personal growth in a meaningful way?
This event is open to any student who is interested in, or planning to, study abroad.
2/4 at 12:30PM – Cudd Porch

Join the SIT Custom Programs team for this interactive, 90-minute skill-building session focused on identity, privilege, and power. Together we will investigate the practical activities that can be integrated into short-term and faculty-led programming to help students—and ourselves—think critically about issues of positionality while studying abroad. You will walk away with experience using activities that can help your students move towards achieving a decolonial mindset. Participation will be capped at 16 participants to ensure intentional engagement, with priority given to study abroad professionals and faculty who work on faculty-led programming.
Presenters: Jennifer Cinti, Seth Diemond, Hannah Sorila, Zufan Hagos
