As coronavirus continues to impact Wisconsin, some colleges and universities are making changes to their study abroad programs for the Fall 2020 semester.
UW-Green Bay has suspended study abroad programs for the fall. Brent Blahnik, the director of International Education at UWGB, said prior to the pandemic, they were setting enrollment records in education abroad. He said they are constantly assessing the situation and trying to make decisions at the right time. They made decisions based on programs and how much time was needed for students to secure visas, make travel plans, and enroll in courses. He said they tried to wait to make decisions as late as possible, but with safety concerns, it just was not feasible to go.
