Beyond Borders and Boundaries
Beedie Abroad Network
Open to all SFU Beedie students, as well as incoming exchange students, the Beedie Abroad Network (BAN) provides social and cultural programming, academic mentorship and greater connections to the study abroad community.
SFU Beedie students are matched with inbound and nominated students, and receive formal mentoring and coaching training so they can be advocates, guides and sources of information throughout the Study Abroad experience.
BAN members on exchange represent SFU Beedie Abroad on social media and have the option to participate in promoting exchanges to SFU Beedie students upon their return from abroad.
