WKU Study Away will host the Kentucky Study Abroad Symposium on March 28 at the Knicely Conference Center on WKU’s South Campus. Students and faculty from Kentucky postsecondary institutions who have engaged in academic activity outside their campus will present informative sessions regarding their experiences studying abroad or away.
“The Symposium will provide insight from others who have benefitted from the enhanced learning experience that international and off-campus domestic studies offer students,” said WKU Study Away Coordinator Erin Greunke.
Presenters include those who have studied abroad (outside the U.S.) or away (throughout domestic or U.S. territories) between fall 2012 and winter 2015 and were nominated by a faculty symposium advisor or sponsor.
Presentations begin at 9 a.m., with a plenary lunch at 1 p.m. with a keynote address from Josh Meltzer, assistant professor in the School of Journalism & Broadcasting at WKU.
Attendance to the Symposium presentations is free. Fees for the lunch/keynote address are $25.
Registration for the lunch/keynote continues through Tuesday (March 24). To register, visit www.wku.edu/eps/ky-sa-symp/.
WKU Study Away partners with WKU academic departments to provide off-campus programs that enable students to apply the lessons learned in the classroom in a practical, hands-on setting. The Office of Study Away is a unit of the Division of Extended Learning and Outreach
