Dr. Jeremy Carney presented at the 2017 CIEE Annual Conference on International Education. The conference was held in Austin, Texas on May 8-11. Dr. Carney, along with Dr. David Tack from the University of North Dakota presented on their research entitled “The Impact of a Short-Term Study Abroad Tour on the Developing Professional Identity of Education and Social Work Undergraduate Students.” The purpose of this study was to examine undergraduate education and social work students’ perceptions of professional identity after experiencing a two-week study trip in Ireland. Specifically, we studied how the identity issues at the heart of peace and reconciliation conflicts in Northern Ireland would affect these specific undergraduate students’ developing professional identities.
