Attend a Domestic Exchange Information Session - no appointment necessary.
Information Sessions are mandatory to receive applications and necessary details.
Through Domestic Exchange, UMass students can study at another college or university, allowing them to live in another geographic area, access courses and facilities not offered at their home campus, and broaden their undergraduate experience.
This program offers students the opportunity to share inspiring stories and innovative discoveries. Selected students will present a 5-12 minute-talk in a live showcase which will be recorded and made available to larger audiences. Talks can explore a range of topics addressing personal growth, academic research, or new perspectives. This can result in shared learning, inspiration, and motivation to make a positive change.
• Practicing empathy and working across difference
• Making mistakes and learning through experiences
• Producing original research, discoveries, and inventions
• Challenging dominant narrative and stereotypes
• Making a difference as an active bystander (and many othes)
Participating students will attend workshops and receive support to prepare them for the showcase. If you have an idea that would be a good fit for this program and you would like to share it with others, apply to be part of this great opportunity.
