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.
