Parents of Global Education Students

Congratulations! Your student has decided to participate in a Global Education program -- an experience we hope will be fulfilling, life-changing and transformative. Thank you for supporting your student, not only through the planning and participation process, but also when your student returns from a Global Education experience.

ASU strives to provide students with the knowledge, skills and tools that foster success and independence, and study abroad can be an integral part of that personal and academic growth process.

Throughout a Global Education experience, the safety, health and well-being of our students are our highest priorities. Our International Coordinators with regional expertise are available to offer advice, before, during and after programs. We offer an informative Global Education Program Handbook, pre-departure orientation, extensive medical insurance coverage, and a comprehensive emergency response system.

Once a student arrives at a program destination, the student may experience stress and a period of adjustment related to being in a new and different location and. The Global Education Office website offers tips on how you can support your student through what can be both a challenging and exciting time.

ASU parents are encouraged to communicate with their students about the Global Education experience, to use the resources available on our website and to contact the Global Education Office and International Coordinators directly if you have any questions or concerns.
