The 3rd Annual Kentucky Study Abroad Symposium sponsored by the WKU’s Study Away Office is planned for Saturday, April 19, 2014.
We would like to ensure that students and faculty from around the Commonwealth and beyond are represented at the symposium as all post-secondary institutions are invited to participate.
The Symposium will be an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to discuss the academic structure and benefits that accompany education abroad (outside USA) or in domestic programs away (within US States and territories). Faculty are also invited to share their expertise in leading programs and discuss best practices with peers from across the state and region.
We strongly urge faculty to nominate and guide students through the symposium proposal process, in addition to proposing a faculty presentation, as well. We hope that you will pass the invitation along to any of your colleagues and students that might be interested in participating.
The Call for Proposals with additional information can be found at the KY Study Abroad Symposium website: http://www.wku.edu/eps/ky-sa-symp/
Participants must also register via the website. A registration fee of $50 per person will be required for student and faculty presenters. Groups are welcome, and each individual needs to register separately for the event.
A registration fee of $25 will be required for non-presenters that wish to attend the Lunch Plenary Session. All other presentations are free and open to the public.
The non-refundable registration fee must be submitted at the time of proposal submission and will confirm willingness to participate.
The deadline for student and faculty proposal submission via KY Symposium website is March 15, 2014.
