What does it take to run a study abroad program amid the COVID-19 pandemic? Join SIT for an invigorating discussion on the many factors that go into facilitating study abroad today, and get an exclusive peek at the tools SIT staff use when deciding whether to run a program. SIT leadership will draw from the organization’s experience this past year to explore the go-no-go decision making process; how they ensure students, staff, and local communities stay safe when running programs; what’s needed to adhere to country-specific curfews and navigate limited group mobility; and the implications of quarantines and mask mandates. The session will also reflect on opportunities for reciprocity and giving back to host communities in these challenging times.
Presenters: Michael Zoll, Ian O'Brien | Moderator: Craig McDonald
