Proposal: “Going Global: Incorporating Sustainability in Study Abroad Programs”
Outcomes: Develop orientation materials to be used by both faculty preparing short-term programs as well as by students attending either short-term, semester, or year-long study abroad programs. Using case studies, materials would make faculty and students aware of the current impacts that world travelers have on the global tourist industry and on local communities, and would suggest areas in which travelers should pay attention to the choices they make so as to encourage a positive experience for people and cultures with whom they come into contact, as well as natural environments.
