WISE is the pioneering conference for faculty leaders, program coordinators, and administrators to develop the knowledge and skills needed to help students advance their intercultural skills and awareness during abroad experiences. Founded as the Workshop on Intercultural Skills Enhancement, WISE has grown into a nationally-recognized conference. With approximately 275 attendees, the opportunities to have in-depth conversations and network with colleagues is the norm, rather than the exception.
The conference features a number of Wake Forest faculty, staff, and student presenters, including the following sessions:
Alta Mauro, formerly Wake Forest’s director of Multicultural Affairs, will give the keynote address Thursday afternoon, Feb. 14. Mauro is the founding director of Spiritual Life & Intercultural Education at New York University Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, where she leads institutional efforts related to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and the intercultural competence of students, staff, and faculty.
WISE 2019 also features Pre-Conference Workshops on February 13, for which paid registration is required. Topics include:
