Student Commitments

Student Commitments

If a student is chosen to participate in the program, once paired with their partner, he/she must take responsibility for maintaining contact with their partner and organizing bi-monthly meetings. Both partners have a responsibility for this; it should not be solely the American that proposes a meeting idea or vice versa. All students must also attend the three large group meetings, unless there is an unavoidable conflict (in which case they should inform ISFO a week prior to the large group meeting). Students will need to fill out a monthly online form indicating the dates they met and activities that they participated in as well. 

Monitoring and Evaluation

Each student will be required to report monthly through an online form indicating that he/she met with their partner at least twice a month. The students will indicate the dates they met and the activities they participated in as well as describe what they have learned and appreciated about their experience.

At the end of the semester, all participants will fill out a survey of their experience. Surveys will be reviewed by ISFO in order to improve the program for future semesters.
