Faculty and Advisors

Faculty and advisors serve an important role in the study abroad experience. Their support is also vital to assist international exchange students and help them adjust to our campus, a new college education system, and American culture. There are different ways faculty can be involved; for example, by leading a short-term study abroad program, coordinating an exchange program, participating in the Global Gov Meet-a-Family program, hosting an international scholar or just by talking to students about the benefits of gaining study abroad experience!
