Learning Abroad Center Open House

    2019 Learning Abroad Center Open House

    We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting an open house during the 2018-19 academic year, sponsored by the Learning Abroad Center and Global Programs and Strategy Alliance at the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities. This event will provide opportunities to have dialogue about strategies on a variety of topics related to education abroad and campus internationalization. The format will be highly participatory and will engage campus stakeholders and international education professionals. We look forward to hosting what we hope will be a series of annual conversations and sharing of models for success.
