Ever thought about studying, interning, conducting research, or a service-learning project abroad, but not quite sure what your options might look like? Considering working abroad after graduation and want to learn more?

Attend the 2018 Global Experiences Conference! It’s a free event open to all who have an interest in international and intercultural experiences.

During UT’s International Education Week,the Global Experiences Conference is Bringing the World to Rocky Top. Hear firsthand about your peers’ international experiences and advice. After a poster session, presentations, and an international dinner with keynote speaker Todd Steed (UT alumnus, international enthusiast, musician, and WUOT staff member), you’ll be sure to walk away with inspiration.

The conference will take place from 3 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, November 14, in the Panhellenic Building. We encourage you to participate in as much of the conference as possible; however, you are welcome to drop in and out of conference events according to your schedule.

“I have been a presenter for the past three years and am pleased to see the investment that the university is continuing to make in providing opportunities for students, staff, and faculty to be global citizens by studying, working, and researching abroad. As a dual national, I’m particularly blessed to be able to share the insight and experiences I have in working and living abroad – and to see firsthand the necessity of preparing our students, especially, for a highly competitive workforce,” said Heather Davis, an administrative specialist in teacher education. “Being able to study or work abroad gives them an added advantage when seeking employment, and the experiences they have abroad will remain with them for a lifetime.”
