things abroad in the language they've been
working on. Now they can come back and
do the same thing with their professors here."

Develop Events for Faculty and
Students to Share Education
Abroad Experiences With the
Entire Campus
A full-day symposium offered at the University of Richmond for the first time in the fall
of 2014 gave students returning from study
abroad, as well as faculty involved in education abroad and international students, the
opportunity to share what they've learned
with the campus community. It not only
promoted the value of study abroad to students and faculty not already involved with
it, but to students returning from study
abroad as well. "It was excellent as a reentry
tool," Hoff says. "We had students come up
to us and say
'I'm2016
so glad
came.

my friends talk made me appreciate all that
I had learned as well.'"
Kathleen Bailey, an adjunct associate
professor in the Department of Political
Science and associate director of the Islamic
Civilization and Societies Program at Boston College, takes students to Kuwait on a
regular basis.
"Students who are exposed to different
cultures learn to appreciate different ways
of looking at things, different views and
solutions to common issues," says Bailey.
"It stretches their minds and makes them
think more creatively. I see this process every time I teach my course in Kuwait. At first
students are puzzled by unfamiliar customs,
and social and political practices. But, if exposed long enough and encouraged to keep
an open mind, they soon develop an understanding and appreciation for a perspective
different than their own. It makes them
more flexible.

more effectively, build new relationships,
and have a positive effect on the people with
whom they are interacting."
She stresses the importance and value
of intercultural learning for faculty as well.
"We should be mindful of the extraordinary
opportunities presented in teaching abroad.
Faculty should be encouraged to engage
with local people, rather than concentrate
solely on the academic part of the course.
This might be the most impactful part of the
experience, and cannot be replicated at the
home institution." She adds, "We all need to
get out of our comfort zones."
