International experience is one of the most important components of a 21st century education. But currently, less than 10% of U.S. students study abroad. That's why IIE has launched the "Generation Study Abroad Initiative."
We believe study abroad builds important life skills and is a transformational experience. Our goal is to have 600,000 U.S. students studying abroad in credit and non-credit programs (using the Open Doors 2019, which reports on 2017/2018 data).
