World Learning believes that study abroad provides an important platform for transforming global perspectives and individual lives. The Exchange provides resources for returned students to maximize their study abroad experiences and continue their journeys to becoming socially responsible global citizens:
For those who took the challenge to study abroad, the transition back to life at home is full of exciting possibilities. This toolkit will be a starting point for students as they readjust to home life. It will provide students with the resources to help them integrate their experiences into their academic and professional lives and to help them take action as engaged global citizens.
This manual, written by an SIT Academic Director, guides parents through the re-integration process that students experience after studying abroad. The goal of this handbook is to look at why return culture shock occurs, examine some of the typical concerns of students going through re-entry, and finally, discuss what parents can do to assist their children during this process.
