What is this conference about? This conference is about MSU students’ learning abroad experiences.
We define “learning abroad” to include: MSU students’ experiences in a study abroad program, international
students’ experiences at MSU, and U.S. students’ experiences with international students at MSU. The
conference is designed to give voice to students’ stories through a variety of creative media so that fellow
students and MSU faculty and staff may better understand the learning abroad experience.
