Lawrence aims to provide services and resources to those students who study off-campus upon their return to help them process these high-impact experiences. While the Off-Campus Programs office offers programming and workshop related to making meaning of the study abroad experience, it is very powerful when these messages are received in multiple forms.
Students want to know how to connect what they learned abroad with their major and career aspirations. Faculty teaching classes on-campus can play a role in supporting study abroad students' transition back to campus. Are you interested in how you might assist study abroad returnees to process and integrate their experiences into their academic interests after return? Might you consider how off-campus study returnees can help diversify and meaningfully contribute to the discussions in your classes? How might all students in your classes benefit from unique perspectives of study abroad returnees?
