Consulting Services Summer Rejuvenation Grants

We are excited to announce that we will be awarding four offices with a 2023 Summer Rejuvenation Grant.

Travel has returned and students are studying abroad again in record numbers. While we are excited to see our industry back online, this shift may come with a level of stress as teams manage these students in a post-pandemic world. For almost 20 years, CIS Abroad’s Consulting Services team has assisted U.S. study abroad offices that feel overwhelmed, busy, or inefficient. Our team can introduce tools and resources to get your office rejuvenated and excited again!

What's covered in the Summer Rejuvenation Grant?

The CIS Abroad Consulting Services Team will spend 1.5 days on your campus leading a series of four workshops. Team members will earn Professional Development Badges. The value of the grant is $5,000. 

Included Workshops 

Effective Teams
Learn how to identify common dysfunctions of a team. Discover what it means to have psychological safety, as well as the key attributes of successful teams.

Core Customer
By analyzing your insights & data we’ll begin to paint a picture of what types of students you are currently attracting and enrolling.

Examining this process with a student perspective, we’ll explore ways to better advise and support students throughout their entire journey.

Program Portfolio Review
Determine best fit programs based on your core customer. Look for programming gaps or redundancies as well as quick wins that can make a big impact.
