Ēdūcō 2015:
The 4th Annual Interdisciplinary Conference on Global Research and Study Abroad


The 4th Annual event will focus around the theme "Educo: I lead, produce, educate, bring forth or away". "Educo" will take you beyond traditional concepts of education in a day where you explore your role in the community around you - both local and international.

We are all agents of educational change, the conduits of the very education we seek. Join us as we explore the "Latin" roots of education through student presentations, faculty-led workshops, personal development exercises, guest speakers, and networking. Share your experiences with other students and faculty and learn how you can use your international education to impact your future.
