Athena exhibiting with the Collective

Athena and our fellow Global Learning Collective consortium partners (CEPA, The Asia Institute, EDU Africa and Campus b) will be at the NAFSA conference in Washington DC later this month.  We will be jointly exhibiting again as the Collective, at our beautiful island booth #1701 in the expo hall.

Taste of The World Reception

We also invite you to come by our booth in the expo hall and grab a Collective button, which will be your entry ticket to our Taste of the World Reception, happening  on Thursday 5/30 at 4pm and hosted at the Global Learning Collective booth (#1701)

We look forward to seeing you in DC!

The Collective is the first truly global consortium of educational organizations that share similar values, offer a personal connection to your in-country host partner, while providing on-the-ground expertise and local access in each region of the globe.

The Collective represents the collaboration of (not the merger of) five personalized, smaller, mission-driven international education organizations.  Our shared goal is to connect more corners of the world through this partnership of our like-minded and value-driven organizations.

The proud members of the Collective are:

* Athena Study Abroad
* The Asia Institute
* EDU Africa
* Campus b


For each of our organizations, a vital component of our missions is to remain true to our core of being smaller family-run organizations focused on authentic and immersive opportunities abroad.  Maintaining these values can be very difficult to achieve with organizational consolidation and mergers, because often in those instances the heart and driving engine of the local organization is no longer local.

The Collective changes all of that.  Through this consortium of independent organizations, we are now able to offer our partners:

* Expanded Customized and Faculty-Led Programming in nearly every area of the world (including Africa, Asia, South America, and Europe) mindfully created by local organizations.

* A catalog of Semester, Short Term, and Gap Year Study Abroad Programs spanning the globe focused on meaningful, personalized experiences abroad.

* Working together as a Collective, we can provide an answer to nearly any programming need of your office or institution.

* Any Location, Any Duration – the Collective is your trusted resource for personalized, localized programming across the globe.  Build your own program with the Collective, or join one of our catalog of program offerings!
