New Certified Professional: Erin French

The Forum is very pleased to announce that Erin French of Iowa State University’s College of Human Sciences successfully completed The Forum’s Professional Certification in Education Abroad Program. Erin 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 Erin!

“The Forum’s Professional Certification program has enabled me to understand how the Standards of Good Practice work together to increase the quality of education abroad programming. I am implementing the Standards for the programs I develop and coordinate, and this allows me to guide faculty partners, to collaborate with fellow international education staff to develop university-wide policies and procedures, and to demonstrate to students and their families that Iowa State University’s College of Human Sciences is committed to providing quality academic and cultural study abroad experiences. I look forward to further developing as an international educator by publishing and presenting to fulfill the program’s maintenance requirements.” – Erin French
