For Students, Faculty, Staff and Practitioners
The Institute should be a dynamic introduction to counseling in Italy, as well as a ten-day adventure in a European country with much to see and do. It is an opportunity to gain an international perspective while enjoying the camaraderie with colleagues and students on counseling and higher education. Counselor educators, staff, higher education professionals and students from other universities are welcome.
Counselor educators or doctoral students who wish to make an international presentation on a cultural issues at the Italy Institute are asked to submit a brief proposal outline detailing the topic to Dr. Mona Robinson at robinsoh at ohio.edu<mailto:robinsoh at ohio.edu>.
Please share this opportunity with students of counseling or other majors as the course will meet the requirements for many cross cultural courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. Part of which will consist on an online dimension beginning prior to departure and will continue through the trip and through the end of the summer.

The intention is to broaden participants' awareness of social diversity, counseling, higher education, and cultural conflict issues in a non-American setting and to share a travel abroad adventure with friendly colleagues in a semi-structured environment.
This is the chance for current and future counselors to see what counseling, higher education, and human services work is like in a European country while enjoying trips to historic Italian cities as well as living in the historic 14th century villa, Casa Cares in Tuscany, Italy. We will reflect on parallels and differences between American and Italian cultures and counseling and higher education approaches. For further information on sign up, the costs, and the amenities that go with the trip (tours, some meals, and arts events), contact the Office of Study Abroad at Ohio University.
The leaders of the trip will be Drs. Mona Robinson and (robinsoh at ohio.edu) and Adah Ward Randolph (wardrand at ohio.edu).
