University of Utah - Asia Campus
East Asia 2017
This Regional Institute will provide challenging, thought-provoking, and professionally meaningful sessions concurrently implemented in three professionally focused streams: the beginning counselor, experienced counselor, and university admission representative. A fourth stream is woven into the schedule and will bring all attendees together in mixed sessions. Together, these streams will deliver a curriculum created to promote professional competencies relevant to counseling and admissions work throughout East and Southeast Asia. And although the location of the institute is in Korea, the curriculum encompasses the whole of the region.
Additionally, there will be a sub-regional breakout session, a reverse fair, a program focused on Korean university applications, and a travel-planning center for admission staff, manned by counselors and experienced admissions travelers, to help with logistical advice on work-based travel in countries throughout the region.
