Session I: Overview of AIDE Roadmap & Guideline Six | Student Advising

Student advising is a critical component of a student’s international experience. It can often be the case that students from diverse backgrounds have faced a different set of challenges in accessing study abroad; these students make up a population that may require different advising and support systems to make study abroad feasible. It is essential that students have the information they need to prepare to for study abroad, actively engage while they are abroad, and reflect on their experiences when they return. This information is not only important for the student who will be abroad, but also for the education abroad professionals who will be supporting them in their endeavors.

Session II: Guideline Eleven | Re-Entry

When students participate in study abroad programs, they have experiences and stories that can be life changing. It may be helpful for these students to meet with professionals and students who have had similar experience to debrief, share, and exchange ideas on next steps. While re-entry may appear to be of minor importance compared to other areas of study abroad planning and advising, students – especially diverse students – may find re-entry advising, support, and programming helpful in processing international experiences and to build upon the skills developed abroad.
