Tips for a Regenerative—Not Just Sustainable—Study Abroad Experience
To leave a positive impact takes more than reducing the carbon footprint produced by your trip and sustainability alone isn’t enough. See how a regenerative mindset on study abroad can help save the planet.
Share the post in your student communications and show students the role that responsible travel can play in saving the planet.
Also consider resharing these updated posts:
  • The popular blog post 14 Countries Where You Can Save Money on Study Abroad has been refreshed to include 2021-22 program comparisons.
  • Also, new student testimonials have been added to How to Pack Light for Study Abroad.
Call for Alumni Feedback The editorial team for The Californian Abroad is writing a blog post titled Skills You Learn on Study Abroad that will Pay Off Forever. The goal is to inspire future UCEAP students to study abroad with alumni stories. Ask alumni to tell UCEAP a skill (personal, professional, or otherwise) they learned on study abroad that has paid off for them. Alumni should send their stories to communications@uceap.universityofcaifornia.edu.

UCEAP Systemwide Office Heading to a New Home
The UCEAP Systemwide Office is in packing mode as staff prepare to move to new headquarters in Goleta, California.
Cubicles are being dismantled, files are being sorted, and computer equipment is being packed, distributed, or decommissioned. Over at the new office space, preparations include IT infrastructure, security arrangements, and a working floorplan.
On March 1, the UCEAP Systemwide Office will open the doors at its new location: 420 S Fairview Ave., Suite 200, Goleta, Calif. 93117.
The office’s footprint will be smaller than it was on Hollister Avenue as much of the staff will continue to work a remote or hybrid schedule.

Black History Month
Studying in Ghana was a dream come true. As an African American woman who had never been to Africa, it is hard to describe the feeling I got when I looked around and every face looked like mine. I felt at ease and welcomed. I felt for the first time in my life that I was home.
