CCIS Annual Conference: Creating Sustainability in Education Abroad
February 28, 2018 - March 2, 2018
This College Consortium for International Studies (CCIS) conference will explore innovative frameworks for creating sustainability in education abroad. The concept of sustainability will be examined within a broad and holistic context encompassing academic, programmatic, socio-economic, organizational and individual dimensions.
Major conference themes to be explored include sustaining education abroad in a changing global environment; creating fiscal sustainability for education abroad; incorporating environmental and social sustainability into education abroad programming; and maintaining institutional, personal and professional sustainability.
The CCIS retreat-style conference will allow attendees to enjoy informal fireside chats, one-on-one networking and stimulating conversations about relevant topics in the field of international education. Other exciting conference activities include the opportunity to meet individually with international host institutions to learn about various CCIS education abroad programs, organized activities such as morning yoga sessions, and personal and professional growth workshops.
