On February 10-11, 2012, International Programs invited fourteen staff and faculty members from across UNCG's campus to participate in the Workshop on Intercultural Skills Enhancement (WISE) in Winston-Salem. These faculty, staff, and students joined Dr. Penelope Pynes at Wake Forest University’s Graylyn Conference Center for an exploration of methods to prepare students for meaningful cross-cultural engagement in study abroad. UNCG faculty members Dr. Keith Mobley and Dr. Ana Hontanilla, along with Counseling and Educational Development doctoral student Laura Shannonhouse, presented the benefits they have discovered by incorporating additional intercultural preparation into the design of their respective programs.
