Colleagues in the Kofi Annan Institute for Global Citizenship, together with Dean Donna Maeda, recognize the Center for Study Away team (CSA), shown here from left to right: Marcus Carrigan, Pre-Departure Programs Specialist; Barbara Stinson, Study Away Finance and Data Specialist; Indra Halvorsone, Department Coordinator; Shanti Freitas, Assistant Director; Kevin Morrision, Director. These staff members provided exceptional, timely care resolving individual circumstances for each of the 163 Macalester students studying away during Spring Semester 2020. The CSA staff began their intensive work in response to the global pandemic in February and continued, at times around the clock, until the end of March. Staff members consulted with students, providing information and guidance as they made choices, and coordinated travel home arrangements and program completion plans for all students, which included layers of immediate communication with students, their families, and host programs.  Added CSA staff  work continued in April while study away students received room and board refunds, on-going support with re-entry, and program completion. Thank you: Kevin, Shanti, Barbara, Marcus, and Indra for your devotion to each of the 163 Macalester students in Study Away programs Spring 2020.
