Will AI Disrupt the Agency Model as We Know It?- Registration Coming Soon. 
June 2019

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is creeping into all aspects of modern life, even the counseling of students looking for an overseas education experience. With the rise of online and virtual counseling sites, what is at stake for the ‘traditional’ in-person counseling model? What is the impact for universities? Two colleagues - one on each side of this debate - will provide their thoughts and perspectives.
