As you know, the shared study abroad experience brings together people of all different backgrounds. We will most definitely have a fun and informative day!

Who are the organizers?

The EVOLVE Conference is a collaborative and combined effort of the study abroad/international programs offices of UAlbany, Union College, Siena College, SUNY Cobleskill, Marist College, SUNY New Paltz, and Skidmore College. Though we may be a few years older than you, our conference committee is full of study abroad returnees/nerds!
