The Advisor Day Series
The Advisor Day Series at The College of Global Studies is designed to offer our partners in the field of international education the opportunity to learn more about our mission, philosophy, pedagogy, programming, and co-curricular learning. The series is also an opportunity for professional development and to network with other professionals in the field of international education. In addition, there are several opportunities throughout the year for participation from faculty and other departments or academic units to attend focused discussions on areas of interest, discipline specific topics, or program development.
There is an informal dinner with our staff and other Advisor Day participants the Thursday evening before the Advisor Days. We ask that whenever possible participants join us for the dinner.
To register for one of our Advisor Days, please select the date you wish to attend. You will be asked to complete a short form to help us prepare for your attendance at Advisor Day.

Advisor Days - General
Advisor Days are an opportunity for participants who are new to the field of international education and/or are unfamiliar with Arcadia University and our programs. Advisor Days will give participants the opportunity to meet with the different departments at The College of Global Studies such as Student Services, Finance, Health and Safety, and Academics. In addition, each Advisor Day will offer several one-on-one or small group break-out sessions with Arcadia staff to address specific topics of interest in more depth such as countries of responsibility, discipline specific programming, or experiential education.
Advisor Days - Topic Specific
Topic Specific Advisor Days invite both those new to the field of international education and/or new to Arcadia University and its programming as well as participants from departments outside of study abroad (such as Career Services, Academic Advising, and faculty or staff within academic units) who would benefit from from an overview of The College of Global Studies as well as the topic specific discussion. Topic Specific Advisor Days will offer the same format as general Advisor Days with a lunch discussion of a topic such as Internship Programming, opportunities for STEM students, or co-curricular learning. Participants can attend in pairs from the same institution or individually.
Professionals' Days are offered to mid-level study abroad staff who are generally familiar with Arcadia University and its programs. The morning will be dedicated to an update on The College of Global Studies programming and initiatives and an opportunity to meet with the Program Managers. The rest of the day will have a roundtable format to discuss a topic of interest to mid-level administrators such as "Advocating for Study Abroad," "Financial Models of Study Abroad," and "Crisis Management."
Discourses invite senior-level staff in the field of international education who are familiar with Arcadia University and its programming. These events will provide brief updates on our new staff, structure, and programming. The majority of the day is a roundtable discussion on a specific topic. Previous Discourses have focused on Experiential Education, Cohort Programming, and Australia.
Roundtables are an opportunity for staff, faculty, and international educators to participate in a discussion and to give feedback regarding programming developments. These events will include an overview of The College of Global Studies and a specific program. Roundtables look to solicit feedback on what works for different institutions and their students, and how we can improve and build out programs. Past Roundtables have focused on Pre-Med/Pre-Health Programming in England and Engineering in Rome. Participants are invited to attend in pairs from their home institution or individually.
