Intercultural Awareness Abroad – CYA attends WISE Conference
CYA’s Katie Sievers (Associate Director, Campus Relations) attended the 10th Annual Workshop on Intercultural Skills Enhancement (WISE) Conference in Winston-Salem, NC.
Hosted by Wake Forest University, the WISE Conference is an opportunity for faculty, university administrators, and study abroad professionals to develop the knowledge and skills needed to help students advance their intercultural skills and awareness during their abroad experiences.
Over the course of two days, Katie participated in a broad range of sessions and presentations and brought back tools that will help CYA better prepare students to engage mindfully with the Greek context and, consistently with CYA’s mission, return home committed to furthering intercultural understanding in their communities.
CYA will be present at the following Conferences. We will be happy to meet with members of the study abroad community.
* March 20-23: The Forum on Education Abroad Annual Conference (Boston, MA)
* April 5-11: Diversity Abroad Annual Conference (Miami, FL)
* May 27-June 1: NAFSA Annual Conference (Philadelphia, PA)
