April Notes from the Director

Dr. Daniella Widdows 
Director of Global Education and Study Abroad
April 29, 2020

We have a new location! After many wonderful years in Bagby Hall, Global Ed is now in Blake A 100/105.  Once campus reopens, we’d love to see you!  In the meantime, emailing or scheduling a virtual meeting is the best way to contact us while Ms. Wright and I are working remotely most of the week.   

Usually at this time of year, we are working with dozens of students as they prepare to go abroad during the summer.  Of course, recent events mean that for the safety of all, the College has cancelled its own faculty-led programs and is not approving study abroad programs by other providers.  We are now looking ahead to next year, by working with students on rescheduling their abroad opportunities, planning four H-SC faculty-led programs for next summer, and organizing our new office space. 

During this hiatus in abroad programs, we also encourage students to explore the world remotely and keep their abroad goals active. H-SC’s Career Services recently posted on their blog some great resources with which to start one’s e-journey and abroad-related skills enhancement.  And of course, please don’t hesitate to contact me — I am happy to help you explore your options and plan for the future!
