Accredited U.S. higher education institutions are invited to submit proposals to host the on-campus portion of the Winter 2014 EducationUSA Training Institutes. Campuses will be reimbursed for adviser expenses (lodging, food, transportation, materials). 

What is EducationUSA? 
EducationUSA is a U.S. Department of State-supported network of hundreds of advising centers around the world. Each year, EducationUSA advisers provide millions of international students with accurate, comprehensive, and current information about how to apply to U.S. colleges and universities. EducationUSA staff also work with U.S. higher education professionals to promote international student recruitment. 

About the EducationUSA Training Institute 
The EducationUSA Training Institute is an intensive training and professional development program designed to provide EducationUSA Advisers with the knowledge and skills needed to enhance their effectiveness and build professional competency. Each two-week EducationUSA Training Institute is comprised of a Washington, DC-based workshop and an on-campus training element. 

The EducationUSA Training Institute: Essentials of Advising (Level 1) program will take place during the winter of 2014. The Level 1 program is designed for new advisers who have at least a year of advising experience to provide a firm grasp of the basic skills and knowledge needed to perform their jobs. Building upon previous training as well as their professional experience, the program will help advisers increase their depth of knowledge and further refine their skill base. 

Host Campus Responsibilities 
In close collaboration with EducationUSA staff, host campuses will design and carry out the on-campus portion of the training program. Campus responsibilities include securing faculty and staff to deliver training sessions, providing on-campus meeting space and other facilities, and arranging all program logistics, including lodging, meals, and transportation. 

Questions about the program, hosting responsibilities, or the host campus application should be directed to Matt Washburn, Program Officer, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, U.S. Department of State, at washburnmp@state.gov

EducationUSA Training Institute is an adviser professional development program administered by the Institute of International Education through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
