Central Texas Lessons from Abroad Conference

Attention all Central Texas study abroad alumni!

On behalf of the Central Texas “Lessons From Abroad” planning committee, you are invited to participate in the first annual Lessons From Abroad Returnee Conference hosted at Texas A&M University in College Station on Sunday, September 22nd from 11:00am – 5:00pm.

Registration is open here: https://secure.touchnet.com/C21490_ustores/web/store_cat.jsp?STOREID=109&CATID=129.  The early bird deadline for registration is September 8th.

The conference is a continued collaboration between regional study abroad offices and program providers, with the goal of addressing the often-overlooked needs of recently returned study abroad alumni.  The keynote presentation will offer insight into how study abroad translates socially, academically, and professionally.  Breakout sessions will provide the tools necessary for practical application of these lessons.

The overall learning objectives for participants are many, but include the following:

  • To foster a forum where returnees can reflect on the present and future value of their overseas experiences
  • To build networks of personal and professional resources for future endeavors in the field of international education
  • To learn how to market the transferable skills gained from study abroad to the professional marketplace
  • To discover professional opportunities with international objectives
  • To find teaching opportunities worldwide
  • To consider extending study abroad to graduate school
  • To connect with other study abroad alumni, professionals, and organizations

We truly believe this conference will mark yet another turning point in the lives of local returnees and give them direction as they plan their futures at home or abroad.

Facebook and Twitter pages for the conference have also been created, so please feel free to follow, like, and forward to your students!



We will continue to update the Lessons From Abroad website with conference information as it becomes available. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected]lessonsfromabroad.org  We hope to see you at the conference in September!
