Many of the BEA membership are actively involved with international exchange programs. These exchanges could be with students or professionals. They include both Americans going abroad or foreigners coming to the U.S. The visits may be short-term for a semester or less or long-term for a degree program. Whatever form the experience comes in, the goal is to provide a quality experience. A common concern is the isolation internationals may feel when they go abroad. What can educators do to improve the experience and encourage more interaction by foreigners with their host population? The panel will include faculty from universities in the U.S. and abroad. They have all been part of programs that partner with universities outside their countries. The panel will also include a visiting foreign journalist on a Humphrey Fellowship at Arizona State University.
