UC International Workshop Series

UC International Workshop Series are for faculty currently leading or interested in leading students abroad. Workshops cover a variety of subjects on how to prepare yourself, as an employee of UC, to travel internationally with students and best practices both in the planning stages and while abroad. UC International recommends that you participate in some combination of our workshop series at least once a year, as we are always updated our best practices and integrating new information.
