Study Abroad Study Advisory Committee Application

The Study Abroad Student Advisory Committee (SASAC) is comprised of 15 members who have shown exemplary leadership in their study abroad experience and continue to be dedicated to cross-cultural learning. The SASAC serves as a volunteer advisory body to the Office for International Programs (OIP) and brings the student perspective to study abroad decision-making. SASAC members can share their ideas and the current needs of students with OIP staff. The SASAC will also play an active role in supporting study abroad through marketing, outreach, and communication specific to study abroad returnees. Finally, the SASAC has been designed to help study abroad alumni recognize and unlock their skills in global leadership through reflection and action. Regular SASAC meetings will provide an important forum for addressing initiatives throughout the year.
 This year, our SASAC will have 3 subcommittees:
1. Event Planning (5 members)
- Organize one event each semester in collaboration with Study Abroad staff
2. Outreach and Communication (5 members)
   - Research international post-grad opportunities
   - Manage communication and updates for returned study abroad students
3. Video and Photography (5 members)
  - Create video content related to the study abroad student experience
  - Organize and manage the study abroad photo contest
Students who have studied abroad on a Loyola Global Center, Global Partner, Global Exchange or Global Faculty-led program and are interested in a unique student leadership opportunity are encouraged to apply.
