Let’s Talk About Culture (before Studying Abroad): The Intercultural Pre-Departure Workshop!

The Offices of Intercultural Learning and Study Abroad are excited to host an Intercultural Pre-Departure Workshop over lunch for this spring semester’s outgoing study abroad students. 

On Sunday, December 3rd at 11:30 a.m. in the Daniel Family Commons, Director for Intercultural Learning, Anita Deeg-Carlin, along with her colleagues in the Office of Study Abroad, will celebrate this exciting educational step by challenging students to think about what we mean by “culture”, to gain awareness on what our own cultures are, and to explore what might happen when we immerse ourselves in new environments. Students returned from their semester abroad will share their experiences and insights about how they navigated the process.  Small group discussion will allow participants to learn in a relaxed and social setting over delicious food!
