SPAN's goal is to help ourselves and others manage the trials and triumphs of cross-cultural transition, so we can learn, love, grow, stretch, build cross-cultural competence and live fulfilled global lives: all the things we launched into the international world to do wisely and well.

Who We Are

SPAN is a not for profit organization based in the Netherlands. Members of the Governing Board and the Leadership Team are volunteers.


SPAN History

The Brainchild of Drs. Doug Ota and supported by the founding SPAN Steering Committee, the SPAN Pre-Conference sought to create a ‘home’ for collaboration, such that good practices could be identified, supported, and connected amongst schools.

SPAN Around the World

SPAN is making a difference in schools and organizations by sharing the most recent research and good practices around positive transitions-care across the globe.
