Seminars & Workshops

Campus Seminars

We offer on-campus 1 day seminars to LAC affiliates. Learning Abroad Center and UofM Career Services staff members will come to your campus in order to facilitate a conversation between you and your career colleagues. LAC will provide you and your guests with an agenda tailored to the needs of your campus and its climate. Discussions will build off of experiences at the U and focused on action steps that can bring you to our office and institution’s goals. Speak to your institutional relations contact if you are interested in exploring this opportunity.

Cost

LAC staff and UofM Career Services staff members' air travel, hotel (if necessary) and per diem expenses. The host education abroad office will be in charge of the invitation list (career counselors, advisers, faculty, staff, administrators), hospitality and space rental.

Regional Workshops

The LAC will host regional workshops around the country on college campuses or meeting centers. These 1.5–2 day seminars will bring experiences from the University of Minnesota together with the host university for others to learn from and share their expertise, pose questions, and discuss trends. You can invite appropriate campus allies, providing you with an arena for lively discussion and time allotted to sketch out the career integration roadmap for next steps on your campus.
