Faculty Forum looks at study abroad programs

by Anne Dolan

The October installment of the Faculty Forum and Dinner series will take a look at the logistics and benefits to students of study abroad programs. The discussion will be led by Lisa Sapolis and Michelle Szabo, program coordinators in the Study Abroad Center, Office of International Students and Scholars.

The two will summarize study abroad and work abroad programs available to Iowa State students, and discuss some of the benefits of study abroad and other international experiences. They also will share the reasons behind the jump in the number of Iowa State students working or studying abroad in recent years and tell how faculty members can get involved in study abroad programs.

"One of the reasons for our success is the increased interest by faculty in study abroad programs," Sapolis said. "Because they have participated in greater numbers, students have more opportunities."

Dinner reservations should be made by 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 3, with Jane Henning, Center for Teaching Excellence, 4-2906, e-mail: Dinner begins at 6 p.m. in the Memorial Union Campanile Room and is followed by the discussion at approximately 6:45 p.m.
