Introductory Call to Study Abroad Program Staff


Introductory Call to Study Abroad Program Staff

  1. Introduction

Hello, my name is [  NAME  ] and I am a US citizen currently living in [  COUNTRY/CITY ]. I’m calling to speak with someone about American students studying at [  UNIVERSITY/INSTITUTION  ]. Are you the right person?

    1. Answers YES: Great! The US has an important election this November. Voting while living outside of the US can be difficult, which is why I volunteer for an organization that helps US citizens register to vote while living abroad. Does [  UNIVERSITY/INSTITUTION  ] have a plan to help US students studying abroad to vote?
