Pre-Departure Orientation: Fall 2021 Semester Study Abroad

April 29 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

In-person cultural training workshop for all students studying abroad during the Fall 2021 semester. This workshop will be interactive, and students will be asked to participate in a number of discussions and simulations. The training will take place over two sessions with a break for lunch in between. 

The workshop will be scheduled as follows: 

  • Check-in opens at 9:45 am. 
  • Morning session: Navigating Cultural Differences and Intercultural Learning. Note: due to the amount of information to cover, we will need to be ready to start no later than 10:00 am. 
  • Lunch Break. We will break for lunch after the morning session. You are welcome to eat in campus eateries or in the conference room (what worked well for past orientations was to take advantage of mobile ordering and eating in the conference room). We will not close the room during the lunch break, so feel free to stick around or get fresh air. 
  • Afternoon session: The Logistics of Studying Abroad, Health & Safety, and Goal Development. We will plan to end at 3:00 pm. 

All supplies for orientation will be provided by the Office of Global Education. Computers, phones, notebooks, etc. are not required, and students are encouraged to bring as little to training as required. Feel free to bring water or coffee, etc. with you. If you’re planning to get food or drinks from Starbucks, please do so prior to the check-in. 

Please note: this is a required workshop for all Fall 2021 semester study abroad participants.
