Spring 2011 Education Abroad Network (EAN) Meeting

Spring 2011 Meeting

Getting to Know You: Working with Underrepresented Students and Learning Abroad
Held Friday, February 18, 2011 in 402 Walter Library

Members of the UofM's Multicultural Study Abroad Group (MSAG) joined the group for a conversation about our students on campus. During this interactive session, we hoped to arrive at a better understanding of how to help students of color work through the real and perceived barriers involved with learning abroad choices. Through case studies, student voices, staff experiences and personal reflection we hope participants expand their comfort level in discussing multicultural issues with students.
