January 2021 Update: 

Education Abroad is still furloughed to 4 days a week, we also no longer have a Graduate Assistant or Peer Advisors to assist with marketing, thus we are asking for your support and patience this quarter, especially around outreach. 

Faculty To-Dos:

  • Download and re-review the Marketing guide (below) for detailed suggestions for marketing and recruitment
  • Schedule Info Sessions
    • We're asking that faculty schedule their own information session Zoom meetings and invite the relevant Ed Abroad Advisor. If your Ed Abroad Advisor cannot attend, we will either substitute an alternate advisor or send a recording as a last resort. 
  • Conduct Zoom class-visits
    • Use the Course Listing system to find courses related to your program and email the faculty directly to ask if you can join for a few minutes to promote your program. These are the single best way to get the word out!
  • Email relevant pathway advisors to have them spread the word to students
    • Many departments have listservs or newsletters, get your info sessions featured in them
  • Download your flyer using the link below. Feel free to make edits (especially to the Info Session dates/times) Can't access a publisher document? Email me at hfis2@pdx.edu. 

Upcoming Deadlines: 

Most programs have a deadline of January 31st, if your program has the minimum number of completed applications, we will close the application on the 31st. If it does not, we will extend your deadline to Monday, March 1st. Once the program is closed to applications, we will send you information regarding the interview & selection process.

While PSU Education Abroad can help support your marketing efforts, the program leaders are ultimately responsible for marketing, recruiting, and filling each program. While this may seem daunting, the Ed Abroad team is here to support you through this process. This site provides steps you can take to successfully market your program. Questions? Make an appointment with Hannah Fischer, the Faculty-Led Coordinator at any time!

Creating a short video to introduce you and your program is a great way to advertise your program - think of it as a virtual classroom visit. Check out our example video by Suzanne Savaria, highlighting her 2021 program to Chile.
