This is a mandatory meeting for all students who will study abroad in Spring 2018.

Intercultural competency is an absolutely necessary tool to live and work effectively in today’s interconnected world.  This one hour and a half Study Abroad Intercultural Effectiveness Session's objectives are to increase students’ understanding and awareness of cultural differences and to provide them with a set of essential skills that will enhance their global competencies and effectiveness.  We hope to accomplish these via discussions, group activities, and thought experiments.
