Trip leader: Trip leaders have special responsibilities when traveling with students. A brief introductory video is available below. MISTI also periodically hosts information sessions for trip leaders. Here is a recent presentation. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org regarding general questions and about upcoming information sessions. Todd Holmes (International Safety and Security) can assist on destination specific questions.
Cultural awareness: GlobeSmart is an online resource available to the MIT community with information on more than 100 countries.
Pre- and post-trip reflection for students: Help students make the most of their experience by articulating goals for the experience and reflecting on what was learned upon return.
MISTI can help
Many MIT students travel abroad as a part of the MISTI program, which creates experiential learning opportunities abroad for undergraduate and graduate students. They have expertise and experience in supporting students going abroad and can help and advise you whether you are planning a program or small departmental or lab trip.
