    This quote pretty much sums it up "The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page" St. Augustine. With approximately 6% of all US study abroad participants being students of color that confirms that this group is under utilizing an invaluable educational opportunity and continues to limit itself. It continues to be a failure on the part of educators. Administrator"s should work to remove systemic obstacles for students and professors to take and teach classes abroad. Teachers and advisors should be guiding students towards experiential education options that not only uproot them from their comfort zones but will help them develop global perspectives.
