2011 Student Symposium on Off-Campus Study
  Students, faculty, and administrators from ACM colleges gather with ACM Chicago Programs staff and ACM office staff at the 2011 Student Symposium on Off-Campus Study.

Off-campus study is a hallmark of liberal arts education at the 14 ACM colleges, and at many of the colleges a majority of students study off-campus at least once during their undergraduate careers. ACM has offered off-campus study programs for nearly 50 years and currently operates consortial programs in the U.S. and Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America.

To be eligible for the Symposium, students must be currently enrolled at an ACM college and must have returned from an off-campus study program, either domestic or international.  The program can be sponsored by ACM, by a member college, or by another off-campus study provider. Students must be nominated by the Off-Campus Study Director at their college.
