June 4-5, 2010

Welcome to the CIBER Short-Term Study Abroad (STSA) Conference 2010. One of the fastest-growing study abroad formats, short-term programs are appealing to students but present unique challenges in curriculum, financing, and program management for administrators.

The purpose of this conference is to bring together faculty and staff who have dealt with these challenges at a variety of schools, to share their experiences and disseminate STSA ideas and best practices and to think about the lasting impressions generated by STSA programs. Whether you are an experienced STSA practitioner or just contemplating the challenges of implementing a short-term program, we hope you will find the agenda compelling. We are confident that the presentations, panels, and networking opportunities with experienced practitioners will leave you with a better understanding of your role in planning, administering, directing, and/or facilitating short-term study abroad programs.

The 2010 STSA Conference will be held upon the conclusion of the annual NAFSA conference in downtown Kansas City, MO, to allow participants to take advantage of the unique opportunities offered by each conference.

We look forward to welcoming you to Kansas City. See you in June!
