On Behalf of the Center for Global Engagement: Global Learning Webinar Class visits to promote Study Abroad

September 07, 2017 9:37 am

Studying abroad is a life-changing experience for the undergraduate students who participate in it. They often come back with more confidence, independence, and a greater understanding of the world and global relationships. Many of them characterize the experience as the most important and rewarding one of their undergraduate career and I know that you share our desire to have more CSI students study abroad.

While all of our students seek us out to learn about the wonderful opportunities that we offer through the College, faculty and staff encouragement is the key to motivating our students to take the initiative to study abroad. In short, our students need your help and we need your help. I’m asking two small favors of you:

-Please encourage everyone to attend our Study Abroad Fair on Thursday, Sept. 28! There is an online flyer with details. You can print this flyer, hang it up, or distribute it. If you’d like us to send you additional copies, just let me know.

-Please consider scheduling a brief study abroad presentation to your classes. Our advisors stand by the ready to speak with your students about the opportunities open to them. Most of these presentations take no more than a few minutes of class time and we’ll work around your schedule. To schedule a class visit, please email Lucy Amon at lucy.amon@csi.cuny.edu with your contact details and the details of your course (title, number, and preferred date and time for the class visit). If you have any immediate questions, you can also call Lucy at 718.982.2101.

As a final note, while you might already know that most financial aid applies and significant scholarships are available, you might not have heard that CSI students won nearly $200,000 in scholarships to study abroad over the last three years​, including semester grants of up to $8,000 from our program partner in Florence, Italy. To see more about our students’ experiences abroad, we invite you to check out student photos and testimonials at our Dolphins Across the Seven Seas CSI Study Abroad Blog.

Thank you for your support.
