Map of South KoreaIn May 2021, graduate students and professionals are invited to participate in a 10-day, 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.
