Human Resources and Capital Development in Education Abroad

May 9-11, 2013, Syracuse University and Gonzaga University Florence programs will co-host: "Human Resources and Capital Development in Education Abroad," Attendance is free and open to the public. A workshop will take place on Thursday. The workshop will provide a review of the Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad, focusing on Standard 7: Organizational and Program Resources. The Standards provide a means to assess all areas of education abroad programming and offer guidance in how to ensure quality in areas such as academic programming, student conduct, resources and personnel, and policies and procedures. This workshop will provide the latest data collected by the Forum’s 2013 Institutional and Program Resources Survey. Using this data and case studies, participants will examine current institutional practices in managing resources.  This offering is intended for those responsible for developing, managing, assessing, improving, or supporting education abroad programs. Participants are expected to have familiarity with either hosting or sending students on education abroad programs. Professionals who may benefit from attending include resident directors and on-site staff, education abroad coordinators and directors, education abroad advisors, and faculty who lead programs.
