Developing a global perspective enables students to gain a broader, richer and more critical view of experience, knowledge and learning; it enables them to understand the links between their lives and those of people throughout the world.
Students and alumni are invited to present, share papers and exhibit paintings, photographs and artifacts that relate to or portray their international experiences. All work needs to be sponsored by a supervising faculty member — usually the faculty member who was involved in the experience itself.
Presentations should be reflective in nature wherein students describe their educational experiences, articulate what they have learned and discuss the impact that the experience has had on them academically, personally and/or professionally. Students may address ways they feel they have grown or changed along any of the following dimensions:
Each oral presentation is allotted up to 15 minutes, with additional time for questions and discussion. Computers and projectors will be available to students. Groups should include no more than three students per presentation.

Full presentation and exhibit information is due on October 9, 2017. Use the Study Abroad Conference Registration Form to submit your presentation or exhibit.
Exhibitions may include paintings, drawings, sculptures, textiles, prints, photographs, video, artifacts or mixed media work.

Tabletop, easel and conference board displays are acceptable.
