Members of the U of M's Multicultural Study Abroad Group (MSAG) will join us in a conversation about our students on campus. During this interactive session, you will leave with a better understanding of how to help students of color work through the real and perceived barriers involved with learning abroad choices.  Through case studies, student voices, staff experiences, and personal reflection we hope participants will be able to expand their comfort level in discussing multicultural issues with students.

Regristation is available on our website.
