Forum on Education Abroad Annual Conference

A little over two weeks ago, the Forum on Education Abroad held its 4th annual conference in Boston on April 2-4, 2008. My understanding is that there were over 700 registered participants which exceeded expectations. I think that the Forum’s leadership and development of a Code of Ethics since the New York and Connecticut Attorney Generals began their investigations into study abroad early last autumn was a leading factor in the overwhelming attendance. All the staff of the Forum on Education Abroad and all of the colleagues who volunteered their time in planning and working the conference deserve a big round of applause.

Conference sessions on standards of good practice and the code of ethics were prevalent throughout the conference. All conference attendees also received hard copies of the Code of Ethics for Education Abroad (2008) and the Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad, 3rd Edition (2008).
