We are pleased to announce that Generation Study Abroad commitment partner San Mateo County Community College District will be hosting the West Coast Symposium at Skyline College on Thursday, June 28th in San Bruno, CA.
During this full-day event we will convene our Commitment Partners and industry professionals in the region to engage in solution-driven and action-oriented dialogue to push the envelope on how we think and "do" study abroad as we work together to achieve our ambitious goal of doubling by the end of the decade and to address the significant value and growing interest and intersection of study abroad, global talent and workforce development.
Thanks to Generation Study Abroad Commitment Partner USAC for sponsoring this symposium!
