CYA Hosting Forum’s 3rd European Conference
As we affiliates and alumni of CYA know, the past year has been a time of change and transformation for Greece and broader Europe. U.S. students studying abroad—at CYA and throughout Europe—are experiencing this transition in real time.
This October, at The Forum on Education Abroad’s Third European Conference, the education abroad community will have the chance to gather and discuss “Living Change: Education Abroad in 21st Century Europe” to better help students “appreciate the past, understand the present and anticipate the future” of their chosen destination (forumea.org). We are thrilled that these conversations will be happening under our roof!
We see it as a great opportunity for our field and for Greece that The Forum has selected CYA as the host institution for this year’s European Conference. The Forum develops best practices and standards for education abroad, and it provides training and resources (like the Conference) to education abroad professionals. Its mission is to improve education abroad programs to benefit the students who participate in them. The Third European Conference will involve about 400 attendees—administration and faculty members who either teach or work in Europe or U.S. colleges and universities—who share in this mission. We can’t wait to welcome our education abroad colleagues to Athens!
