Seeking Study Abroad Mentors

NIC’s Office of Global Engagement is looking for NIC study abroad students and alumni to help future students prepare for study abroad.

We are seeking students’ participation in a series of COVID-friendly engagement activities in regards to discussing perceived barriers to Study Abroad as well as providing input on the development of a non-traditional/decolonized toolkit for international Study Abroad and intercultural exchange.

Domestic students from groups that traditionally have had a low participation rate in study abroad opportunities including Indigenous students, low-income students, and students with disabilities, etc., are encouraged to participate.

Eligible participants will have to be:

  • comfortable participating in activities and discussions with groups of student participants
  • responsive to communication via e-mail and other online modes of communication
  • enthusiastic about sharing their experiences and knowledge as they relate to study abroad participation or barriers to study abroad participation

Time involvement: up to 8 hours over a 8 week period. Gift certificates and honoraria for participation will be available

Project timelines: January 25 to March 31st, 2021.

Interested students can contact OGE @ by February 1, 2021.
