Fostering Student Global Engagement through Academic Advising

During fall 2012, the Division of Undergraduate Studies hosted "Fostering Student Global Engagement through Academic Advising," a scholarly professional development seminar on the importance of academic advising in cultivating a global perspective in undergraduate students. Sessions focused on understanding globalization in an educational context, engaging students in global issues, introducing the range of global opportunities—curricular and co-curricular—available at the University, and informing the pedagogy of advising for global engagement.

The Division of Undergraduate Studies and Penn State World Campus partnered with WPSU to live stream the event, which was made possible in part through a grant from the Bringing Theory to Practice Project in cooperation with the Association of American Colleges and Universities. Generous support for the seminar additionally came from Penn State's Center for Global Studies and the World Campus.
