Our approach to reopening our Global Classroom
MEI recognizes that making the world our classroom again has its challenges, but we are confident that we are up for it. COVID-19 showed us all just how interconnected we are on this planet and it highlighted the importance of becoming a well-informed global citizen. We reopened our programs in summer 2021, finding that we were able to make informed decisions, taking every step possible to keep everyone safe. We will continue to follow the guidance of local and national health officials, the latest travel advisories, and up-to-date international protocol for travel and tourism.
- Limiting program sizes
- Testing prior to the start of the program
- Using face coverings when necessary
- Screening for symptoms
- Practicing proper hygiene
Online and in the World
For over 25 years, MEI has been offering experiential courses around the world without interruption and students have depended on MEI to deliver the best in education. In March 2020 we made the necessary changes and began our Online Live summer program with over 200 students, and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Online work served as a useful learning tool until we gradually opened the doors to the Global Classroom. Our Online and in the World programs combine the best of both worlds: the virtual and the real world. We have adapted our travel programs and bookended them with our Online Live instruction to provide a perfect balance between learning and experiencing.
