Our knowledge of the field of education abroad is unparalleled. So is our network.  

We are uniquely positioned as the Standards Development Organization (SDO) for the field of education abroad. Our real strength, however, comes from the hundreds of voices engaged in the work of standards development, and the insights that come from their collective knowledge. Our consulting practice is grounded in the Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad and elevated by the experience of the people who use them. 

We are effective because we are skilled at bridging theory and practice. The Forum’s research and data collection efforts inform our consulting work. In turn, our research initiatives are informed by the insights we glean about professional practice through engaging with clients.  

When you engage with us, you are not just engaging with a consultant. You are engaging with a community that sets standards for the field, builds thought leadership, produces widely-cited research, provides must-have training and programs, and is focused on impact and outcomes. We provide a forum to discuss what matters to you. We are The Forum on Education Abroad.
