Discover Korea

Join us in Korea

In May 2023, graduate students and professionals are invited to participate in a 12-day (May 20—31), education abroad program to South Korea. Under the guidance of Dr. Ben Littlepage and Dr. Samir Patel, attendees will explore how individual wellness is defined, assessed, and supported at the secondary and post-secondary education levels in a Southeast Asian culture. K-12 education, counseling, and higher education are becoming increasingly globalized. Professionals in these fields are encouraged to adopt a multicultural perspective to provide optimal student support and holistic wellness for all students.
