UT Austin International Office Study Abroad

Creating Access to Global Education Symposium

This year's symposium will focus on creating access in Latin America, through panels and discussion featuring a mix of faculty and staff from UT Austin and visiting experts. The symposium will provide a forum for faculty, academic advisors, and international educators to foster dialog and mutual understanding. Presentations by industry leaders and academic partners on relevant topics will create a unique opportunity for participants to learn and discuss best practices around equity and access. Participants can expect to learn about the role they can play in increasing access to study abroad and can exchange ideas and expertise with participants from other organizations and universities as well.
