In addition, Hannah Fischer will serve as a liaison to Honors and UNST. You can reach her at , hfis2@pdx.edu, 5-4030 

Our goal is to provider a general resource to each Pathway, partnering together on advising, events, outreach, etc.  In addition, we are happy to schedule one-on-one meetings with you, attend staff or department meetings, or visit classes, student clubs, or student meetings to share information about the more than 200 programs offered to PSU students, including the different types of programming that are offered, the best time to apply, the funding opportunities, common myths about studying abroad, insurance, safety, and re-entry challenges.  We are also interested in learning about any potential programs or international partnerships you might be interested in further developing to discuss how we can help. 

If you would like our assistance with programming, if you are open to distributing information to your students about upcoming events and opportunities, if you would like to keep up on our Facebook posts, please let us know! The more we can do together, the better we can serve PSU students by educating them on the opportunities available to them.

The Pathway Liaison listed above should be the first point of contact for your department. 

Implement Curriculum Integration for your Major

In addition to meeting with your Pathway Liaison to keep up to date on developments on both sides, for those departments who are interested in developing specific advising materials and select a prefered portfolio of programs for your major, we invite you to explore the opportunity to engage in Curriculum Integration.  Your Liaison can provide data and present to your department as a whole as soon as you are interested.

Advise students to attend...

Daily Advising Sessions

Encourage students to attend an Education Abroad Information Session - a group meeting held on a daily basis (when classes are in sessions), where students learn more about education abroad programs, costs, processes, and are able to ask questions.  The dates and locations are listed on the landing page our website. (If students cannot attend in-person, there is also an online version available.)

One-on-One Advising

If a student has more questions or wants help in finding an education abroad program, the student can make an appointment with an Education Abroad Advisor or one of the Peer Advisors.  Advisors are able to help students find and apply for a program, compare costs, apply for financial aid or scholarships, and receive academic credit.
