New Certified Professional: Mike Nelson

The Forum is very pleased to announce that Mike Nelson of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign successfully completed The Forum’s Professional Certification in Education Abroad Program. Mike 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 Mike!

“The Professional Certification program provided me with a thorough understanding of the Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad. Education abroad is complex, and the Standards have helped me develop a more comprehensive approach to student advising and a variety of projects in my office. I’m especially glad that I did the Accelerated Residency workshops to start off the program in close collaboration with several of my colleagues and to meet others in the field who work in different contexts. I highly recommend this program for professional development and for improving your contribution to the rewarding work that we all get to do in this field.” – Mike Nelson
