Sharon’s in her third year at Simpson, having come to the college from West Virginia University and having earned her Ph.D. at Penn State in 1995. In the podcast, she talks about the college’s new relationship with the University of French Polynesia, the work that goes into setting up a semester-length study abroad program, and tips she’s learned from her experiences.

Here’s our first Smart Study Abroad podcast, featuring an interview with my colleague Sharon Wilkinson, an associate professor of world languages and culture at Simpson College. Sharon is in the process of setting up a semester in French Polynesia and took a break from her busy teaching schedule at Simpson to talk about the program and her ideas for setting up semesters abroad.
