Mission Statement

Study Abroad Programs develop knowledge and intercultural sensitivity by engaging students with new worldviews and perspectives. Studying and living abroad also promotes a tolerance for ambiguous circumstances and the problem-solving skills necessary to function adaptively amid uncertainty. Classes and experiences in the host culture ultimately develop the skills to interact and communicate across cultural difference, plus a respect for new ways of living and working.
