Leveraging Education Abroad Partnerships for International Student Alternatives during COVID-19

The Forum continues with the Responding to COVID-19 webinar series with this conversation with colleagues from public and private institutions in the U.S. and a program provider organization operating primarily in the Asia-Pacific region.

Colleagues share how they’ve been using their existing education abroad partnerships and infrastructure to place international students from U.S. colleges and universities who are unable or unwilling to travel to the U.S. to pursue their fall 2020 coursework on campus during the pandemic so that they can continue their progress towards their degrees during this unprecedented time.

Presenters discuss how they come up with these solutions, what they learned from the process, and what they anticipate as the rest of the 20-21 academic year unfolds.
