CIEE and Johnson and Wales University have collaborated for the past two years to develop a freshman study abroad program called "Expanding the Freshman Experience." This session will focus on how they created best practices related to transitioning from the more traditional faculty-led program to a collaborative, non-faculty-led program that serves an underrepresented population. Attendees will learn how to design a program that meets the unique needs of freshman students and encourage them to safely leave their comfort zone. Special consideration during this session is given to the developmental phase of emerging adulthood in the design of program components, overall tone, and expectations.
