The summer prior to each WISE Conference, the Steering Committee announces an open call for proposals to facilitate WISE Workshops, four-hour intensive learning opportunities for participants to delve deeper into a specific topic related to intercultural learning.

Workshop topics may range from intercultural skill building techniques, research methods, innovative pedagogies, intercultural training topics, resources for faculty designing/enhancing study abroad programs, and/or emerging topics related to campus-based global programs.

The Call for Workshop Proposals will be announced on this website and through other avenues to reach educators. For planning purposes, the proposal form is provided below.
