Learn about Arcadia Abroad

The Arcadia Abroad team has enjoyed welcoming representatives from partner institutions to Arcadia’s campus over the years as much as we’ve enjoyed visiting campuses across the country. These visits afforded us the opportunity to get to know one another and gave us the chance to share more about what Arcadia has to offer and how we can work together to support your institutional goals.

While much has changed over the last year, our commitment to working with our partners has not. Sadly, getting together in person has become increasingly challenging. We’re happy to share that, in addition to participating in virtual events hosted by our partners, we’ve developed a full slate of virtual opportunities for you to learn more about Arcadia Abroad and to get to know our team. Whether you're a student with questions about getting abroad, a study-away advisor interested in learning more about Arcadia and our programs, or a faculty member interested in finding unique opportunities for your students, there should be a session to meet your needs.

We value the relationships we've developed over the years and. as much as we’ll miss the joy and  warmth that greeting our friends in person brings, we’re confident that our virtual engagement series will help keep us connected. We look forward to welcoming you online.

Don't see what you're looking for? Let us know how we can help, or feel free to reach out to a member or our institutional relations team.
