        OVERVIEW Although the U.S. Supreme Court remanded the case of Fisher v. University of Texas to a lower court for further review, the justices laid out a new, tougher, set of rules for using race that require universities first to examine "race-neutral alternatives." Whether affirmative action policies are outlawed or upheld by the Court, we as study abroad professionals can also ask the question, "Does affirmative action matter to study abroad, and if it does what will we do if the policies toward affirmative action change?" Webinar Goals This presentation aims to: Provide a brief history of affirmative action in American higher education. Explore a short history of diversity efforts in study abroad. Discuss the impact of these policies on study abroad. Who Should Attend International education professionals, advisors, and other education professionals are strongly encouraged to attend. INSTRUCTOR Eduardo Contreras Harvard Graduate School of Education Eddie is an advanced doctoral student at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. His research focuses on the origins, development and spread of study abroad programs within American higher education and in relation to U.S. federal policies in the 20th century.

            "This captures all the imperfections of group travel in a foreign country, boiled down to the authentically naive reactions by some of the cast to the differing cultures and even their obviously innocent perceptions of the world" - Film Threat "The title, Italian for 'Of Passage,' is very appropriate; by the end of the film you feel as though you have been on a journey along with the students." - Amazon.com Review One group of college students is embarking on an international adventure, leaving behind the comforts of their lives in the United States to spend five weeks as foreigners studying abroad throughout Italy. While some are seasoned travelers, others have never stepped out of their state lines, yet alone the country. There's Leslie, an undeclared sophomore, who has never traveled alone or abroad and has no idea what to do with her life. While Leslie may be starting up her college career, Ansley is winding it down, completing her final two courses here before starting work in the fall. Matt, a first time world traveler and agnostic, is leaving home and his girlfriend behind, while John, a devout Catholic who struggles with a modern romance, is reconciling his place in a world at odds with his religious beliefs. Together, they will learn to fit into a culture far different from their own, with a strange language, diet, and travel pattern that all of them have barely imagined. As Pat Conroy said, "Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey." These four young adults, mired between the age of innocent youth and adult responsibility, are discovering a destination that Henry Miller described as "...never a place, but a new way of seeing things."
