New Certified Professional: Jonathan Larson

The Forum is very pleased to announce that Jonathan Larson of Grinnell College successfully completed The Forum’s Professional Certification in Education Abroad Program. Jonathan joins colleagues who have effectively demonstrated the ability to articulate and apply the Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad, and a commitment to professional excellence and ethical conduct.

Congratulations to Jonathan!

“I enrolled in the Professional Certification Program and attended the Accelerated Residency to learn more about the Standards, but not certain that I wanted to go through with certification. The workshops in my accelerated residency engaged me with the Standards in a way that made me eager to continue. The process of doing the assignments, including responding to feedback and figuring out where I needed to put in more thought, was incredibly worthwhile. I recommend certification for anyone wanting to engage with the Standards through a stimulating range of everyday problems that we encounter in the field.” – Jonathan Larson
