19-Jun-2024  Collaborative Research Opportunity on Impacts of Study Abroad

Research Project: Investigating the Long-Term Outcomes and Impacts of Short-Term Mobility (Study Abroad) Programs on Alumni Participants’ Diversity, Leadership, and Employment Pathways

UMAP member institutions are invited to partner with a team of  Australian researchers to  to investigate long-term outcomes of outbound study abroad programs on participants’ career decision-making.  Research will also explore student participants’ capacity for working in decolonising and culturally diverse ways, as well as the impacts of programs on participants’ global awareness linked to global citizenship and Sustainable Development Goals (especially where low and middle income (developing) countries are involved). The current research team is  particularly interested in teacher education, but is open to discuss inclusion of other fields. 

Interested UMAP members can review the complete proposal HERE and should plan to attend the online information session taking place  Wednesday July 17, 19:00 Vancouver / 22:00 Santiago / Thursday July 18 02:00 UTC / 10:00 Manila; KL / 11:00 Tokyo / 12:00 Melbourne
