Just as the field of education abroad (EA) continually evolves, the goals, challenges, and issues confronting EA professionals and the students we are all striving to serve change. ISA’s success at evolving with or ahead of these trends is done with huge credit to one special group: The ISA Advisory Board!
We want to take this opportunity to show appreciation for all members past and present. We are honored to be associated with these generous and consummate professionals, who often spend their Memorial Day attending the annual ISA Advisory Board meeting. We also meet every January in Austin, TX with the Executive Committee of the Board:
Director of Education Abroad
University of Colorado Boulder
Associate Director, International Health, Safety & Security, Study Abroad Office
Arizona State University
Susanne Hill, Ph.D.
Executive Director, International Center
University of Florida
Director, Education Abroad
The University of Alabama
Director, Programs Abroad and Associate Director, Center of International Education
University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Our recent meeting included lively discussions regarding trends in EA mobility, future programming considerations, ISA ThinkDen 2020 (read the ISA ThinkDen 2018 Report), opportunities for our partners and ISA as part of WorldStrides, the trajectories and intersections of EA and online learning, continued strategic investment efforts in the Diversity, Inclusion and Equity landscape, and more. Check out the Advisory Board’s complete membership and feel free to reach out to them if you seek insights into the unique nature and value of their institutions’ innovative and collaborative relationships with ISA.
We thank our Advisory Board members to their valued service to ISA and to the field or education abroad.
