Study abroad/study away programs provide opportunities for students to be challenged by learning in social and cultural environments very different from those in which they grew up and traditionally study.
These programs help students become more reflective of others different from themselves by exposing them to people from different socioeconomic, religious, linguistic, and cultural backgrounds. They also encourage students to learn how to adapt to different environments, work with different types of people, and thereby become more self-aware and self-reflective about their own place in society. Students who take part in study abroad/study away programs consistently report that these programs provide them with powerful, positive life-changing experiences.
