(Oct. 23, 2008)--Last year, UTSA sponsored more than 115 UTSA students in study-abroad programs, and that number is expected to grow this year. To ensure that faculty members are fully prepared for these faculty-led programs, training workshops will be conducted this month.

UTSA faculty members slated to lead a study abroad program this year, or who plan to lead one in the future, should attend one of the sessions from 3 to 5 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 29 and Thursday, Oct. 30 in the John Peace Library Building Assembly Room (4.03.08) on the 1604 Campus.
The workshop is to help ensure faculty members are well prepared for any emergency. The training class will help minimize potential risk and meet multiple challenges that can occur while working with students and programs abroad.
The sessions are co-sponsored by the Office of the Provost; Office of International Programs; Office of Environmental Health, Safety and Risk Management; Office of Legal Affairs; Office of Student Judicial Affairs and Office of Travel Management.
