The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh’s Office of International Education (OIE) is inviting students from various partner institutions abroad to UW Oshkosh during the 2010-2011 academic calendar for various short-term study abroad and cultural exchange programs. OIE is looking for help hosting the visiting students for both weekend and two-week homestays with American families during these programs.
If you have never hosted, you will begin by completing a host family application to be vetted for participation. Following approval, families will receive training about hosting responsibilities as well as more detailed information about program backgrounds, itineraries, and participating students.
If you and your family are interested in hosting a student or if you have questions, contact Mickey Goggin, program coordinator for incoming guest programs, at (920) 424-0775 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
