Extra Opportunities to Expand Your Learning

Workshop: Critical Dialogue on Women’s Issues Around the World

  • Wed, March 25, 8:00-11:30 AM (register via the conference register form)

U.S. Higher Education today is framed by sustained attention to misogyny, sexual harassment and survivors of sexual violence. As a result, college-aged women (and men) in the U.S. are encouraged and increasingly empowered to speak up about these issues when they encounter them on campus or in the workplace. What happens when these same students encounter cultural norms and traditions abroad that clash with their expectations and values, and seem to promote gender inequality? How do we as educators prepare students to interpret and respond to gender inequality in their host community, as well as a plethora of other issues facing women around the world, including racism, educational and economic inequality, restrictions on reproductive freedom, and the impact of climate change?

Super Session: Moving Your Agenda Forward: Using the Standards to Negotiate for Education Abroad

  • Friday, March 29, 8.45-10.35 AM, Room Chouteau

How can we make the case to align our organizations with the recommendations of the new Standards? Building on the Thursday morning session that introduces the new framework, participants will learn how to use the Standard as a tool to negotiate using techniques developed by the Global Leadership League. Participants will practice addressing challenges to stakeholders in their organizations.
