Dear: Mr.xxxxxxx

Is there like a pamphlet for the Ecuador trip so that my parents can start looking at dates for the summer to see if it is possible for me to go.

Sincerely: Andres

Proud father!!!!

His science teacher (name X’d out for confidentiality) is one of the trip co-leaders for the middle school trip to Ecuador. My now 16 year old daughter went on this same trip in August 2015 just before the start of 8th grade and you can see two IHEC Blog posts about her trip here and here and she had the same science teacher and he also co-lead here trip to Ecuador!

This coming Thursday, November 16, 2017 at 1:00pm EST I will be participating in the second World Education Services #IntlEdNow tweet chat.  I participated in their first #IntlEdNow tweet chat back in June, 2017 (you can read the Storify of that tweet chat here) and I’m very excited to participate in their second tweet chat as well.

This tweet chat will be a discussion on career expectations, experiences, and outcomes of international students.  I will be approaching this discussion from a U.S. perspective.

If you are able to follow along and contribute to the discussion that would be wonderful.

 

A  short time ago I was interviewed by GoAbroad.com about my thoughts on meaningful travel and working in the field and you can access the interview here.  I’m a huge fan of GoAbroad.com and the contributions they give to the field but also because of the type of company they are.  I was honored to be asked to answer their questions!

After 17 years at the Univ. of Chicago last Friday was my last day. This coming Monday, October 2nd I start a new position as Assistant Provost for Global Education at Columbia College Chicago.

After 3 days of work I fly to Australia as I was invited to speak as well as sit on a panel at the IEAA Research Roundtable (full program available here) in Hobart, Tasmania and I will stay the rest of the week to attend the AIEC conference. This opportunity is not related to my work at Booth nor Columbia College but is, of course, international education related. After the conference I will be heading home to hire a new director of study abroad and a new director of international student and scholar services!

I’m very excited for this new professional opportunity but incredibly sad to be leaving some really great people that I have grown very fond of and will miss dearly!

Links to 250+ DACA statements issued by institutions of higher education and 30+ associations, program providers, and joint statements compiled by Soren Peterson available on GeoAnth Research at http://www.geoanth.com/daca.

The PIE News published an interesting article entitled “What could the rescission of DACA in the US mean for international education?” that readers may find of interest.

Many thanks Soren for your work on compiling this important list!
