The Global Michigan team is offering 4 workshops for students, staff, and faculty who will be leading groups of students abroad. Prospective program leaders from all across the 3 U-M campuses are welcome to attend whichever workshop/s meets their interests. For the workshops this year, staff experts and former faculty program leaders will share their knowledge during a short presentation, be available for questions, and will co-facilitate table top exercises. Each table top exercise features an emergency scenario related to the workshop topic.
