Integrating Sustainable Development Goals to enhance the impact of student mobility

The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals provide educators with a compelling agenda for enhancing the impact of study abroad programmes for college and university students. Students in any academic major can connect to one of the SDGs when they consider how they can make an impact and become an active learner abroad. This session will introduce attendees to new resources to help study abroad staff and faculty integrate SDG learning and action into their programmes.
