"Overcoming Challenges: Learning Abroad in a Time of Global Change"

6th Annual Learning Abroad Conference

We invite you to submit a proposal to present at MSU's Learning Abroad Conference on Friday, November 17, 2017 at the International Center. Please hold availability from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.

What is this conference about? This conference is about MSU students' learning abroad experiences. We define "learning abroad" to include: MSU students' experiences in a study abroad program, international students' experiences at MSU, and U.S. students' experiences with international students at MSU. The conference is designed to give voice to students' stories through a variety of creative media so that fellow students and MSU faculty and staff may better understand the learning abroad experience. 

Why would you want to participate? Here are a few great reasons why you should be involved. You can...

  • Take time to reflect on your learning abroad experience
  • Share your story so that others may learn
  • Connect with other students
  • Gain valuable experience. Employers and graduate schools value conference presentations

Examples of presentations from last year's conference:

  • The Silver Lining: Intersection of Mental Health and Study Abroad
  • Making the Temporary Last: An Experience about Self-discovery
  • Service Learning in Belize: Moving Beyond the White Savior Complex
  • 9,358 Miles from Home

How do you get involved? Get involved in three simple steps:

  1. Write a proposal. Go to the link Learning Abroad Conference Proposal Form to submit your proposal by October 2, 2017. Proposals will be reviewed by MSU faculty, staff, and students. You will be notified of the decision no later than October 13, 2017. 
  2. If your proposal is accepted, you will work with a conference mentor to focus and refine your draft presentation.
