Re-Entry Information for Parents
Once students return to their home country after being abroad, their study abroad experience doesn’t end right there. They return with new stories to tell and experiences to share, managing reverse culture shock, and often with many hopes and plans for continuing to work on issues they were introduced to while on their SIT program.
Parents often wonder what options may be out there, or what might be happening inside their student during this return phase. Many of these key issues are addressed in the SIT Study Abroad Parent Re-Entry Handbook, written by Academic Director and parent, Leonore Cavallero.
Students are also sorting out their options, whether looking for support and camaraderie upon their return; options for future career paths, volunteer opportunities or internships; conferences and venues to present research they have conducted; or opportunities for advocacy surrounding an issue important to them. Parents benefit from reading this information as well, available on the student alumni portion of this website.
