Why is study abroad important for students from diverse backgrounds?
Senior Manager of Research and Policy
Itís important to understand the world you live in, and the best way to do that is through travel
and study abroad. Study abroad is the best way to develop life skills that will last a lifetime. You
will learn how to persevere in the face of hardship, how to use creative problem solving skills, how
to overcome communication barriers, and how to see people as individuals rather than as stereotypes.
For these reasons, study abroad should be part of every studentís college experience.
