WHAT IS THE HANDBOOK FOR HOSTING?
Written to build and enhance in-country, institutional capacity to serve as hosts for education abroad programs, the new AED Handbook for Hosting is a component of AED’s new Education Abroad Initiative. Institutional capacity building, an AED core commitment in its international development work, will encourage the establishment of more overseas study sites in nontraditional destinations for hosting U.S. students in quality education abroad experiences. AED will target a limited free distribution of the handbook to selected institutions in Africa and the Middle East, and make copies available for sale elsewhere.
