ISA has become one of the leading study abroad providers in the country by developing close professional relationships with study abroad offices, and by assisting each of our program participants through the study abroad process. In an effort to promote comprehensive campus internationalization, increase transparency, and extend our company culture, ISA offers advisors and faculty the opportunity to participate in Group Site Visits, Individual Site Visits, and Advisors' Workshops.
It is our hope that by visiting our program locations on an arranged Group Site Visit or an Individual Site Visit, or by attending an Advisors' Workshop at our headquarters in Austin, Texas, your knowledge of our programs, along with your confidence in ISA, will increase. We welcome the opportunity to host you at our program sites or at our head quarters in Austin, and would be delighted to share our passion for international education with you and your colleagues.
ISA Workshop: FoundationsThe ISA Workshop: Foundations offers an introductory overview of ISA programs, advising resources, the admissions process and pre-departure resources. The ISA Workshop: Foundations will offer information and facilitate discussions regarding many topics, including our Bridging Cultures Program, the Discovery Model and how to best utilize our Global Ambassador Program. Additionally, our participants will hear from our experts in each ISA Division: Internships, Service- Learning, Veritas, EuroScholars and Custom Programs and from ISA Departments: Institutional Agreements and Financial Affairs, Academic Affairs and Health, Safety and Security. Participants will also have the opportunity to attend country/city-specific sessions with the ISA Site Specialists for the areas most relevant to their student advising duties. We are also happy to setup discipline-specific meetings with our Academic Affairs department for your team members that may have advising portfolios based on colleges or majors.
ISA Workshop: Beyond FoundationsThe ISA Workshop: Beyond Foundations provides participants whom are already familiar with ISA programs the opportunity to dive deeper into facilitated discussions on various topics and focus on projects specific to their campus needs. Topics of this workshop may include course mapping and curriculum integration, an in-depth analysis of health and safety policies and building a program portfolio for your campus. We will provide the tools to develop potential Internship and Service-Learning Cohorts, ISA Signature Programs, Exchange Partnership Support and Custom Programs. Participants can also expect facilitated group discussions on trends in Education Abroad and breakout conversations specific to each university's needs.
