Abstract

The University of Hawaii at Hilo (UH Hilo) is part of the National Student Exchange Consortium, a unique, not for profit organization of nearly 170 accredited, baccalaureate-granting Colleges and Universities that provide exchange opportunities to undergraduate students. These exchange opportunities are across the US mainland, the US territories and Canada. The purpose of the National Student Exchange Office at the University of Hawaii at Hilo is to provide UH Hilo students with exchange opportunities at a reasonable and affordable cost. This capstone explores the idea that it is important to prepare students for a domestic exchange program. This capstone will look at the current protocol for UH Hilo NSE students and highlights the significance of developing a four-part workshop series to enhance their program. The workshop series will focus on critical steps in the NSE process that will provide UH Hilo students with the tools, knowledge, and skills to navigate the system, and reflect on the NSE process and their exchange experiences.
