Attention International Scholars!
We are now calling for proposals for the NAFSA/BASAA Re-Entry Conference being held on September 22, 2012 at Stonehill College.
We are specifically looking for proposals that will embrace helping students with re-entry, and what they can do now that they have returned from abroad. Topics can include:
-How to market yourself in a job interview
-Graduate school opportunities
-Volunteering and/or working abroad (both short and long-term)
-How to help others traveling abroad
To submit a proposal, please email the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
-Names and titles of intended presenters (please keep it between 3-4 presenters)
-Tentative title of your session
-A one paragraph description of your session
-Brief bio of each of the presenters
Please keep in mind that these sessions are going to be 45 minutes in length and that your audience will be students who have recently returned from a study abroad program. Proposals are due by August 10, 2012 so that we can be in touch the following week to let you know if you will be presenting.
Thank you in advance and we look forward to seeing you in September!
