The Forum on Education Abroad's
5th European Conference

Beyond 2020: Innovative Practices for an Evolving Landscape

What is the future of education abroad in Europe? As a field, are we prepared for what’s to come? At the turn of the decade, let’s take stock of the realities of 2020—what’s working and what needs to change—and anticipate future developments. Submit your positive, proactive, innovative, and visionary session ideas by January 10, 2020.

How is the perception of U.S. education abroad in Europe evolving? How are the expectations of students, parents, partners, and other stakeholders changing with regard to education abroad, and how can we best respond to these changes? How can we adapt to challenges such as demographic shifts, varying enrollments, changing perceptions of value, resource challenges, and decreasing language study? Innovation will be key.

The Forum on Education Abroad is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, membership association recognized by the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission as the Standards Development Organization (SDO) for the field of education abroad. The Forum develops and disseminates comprehensive standards of good practice, resources and training; advocates for education abroad and its value; and engages the field in critical dialogue to benefit students.

The Forum’s 800+ institutional members include U.S. colleges and universities, overseas institutions, consortia, agencies, organizations, and foundations who are committed to improving education abroad. Under the strategic leadership of the Board of Directors, the Forum staff develops and manages member programs, resources, services, and benefits. The Forum Council represents the interests of the Forum membership, communicates the needs of the field, and works collaboratively with Forum staff to assess and move initiatives forward. The Forum relies heavily on the expertise of colleagues in and outside of the education abroad field, and much of The Forum’s work is accomplished through the support of committees, working groups, facilitators, assessors, reviewers, and volunteers.
