Study Abroad and Travel Abroad


Study Abroad and Community Colleges

“Students from America’s community colleges continue to be underrepresented in study abroad. While the number of students at community colleges participating in study abroad for academic credit has grown substantially in recent years – over 6,000 community college students studied abroad in 2005/06 – less than 3 percent of those who study abroad are community college students”

“The community college mission emphasizes direct learning experiences to teach cognitive and social skills. Few educational
opportunities offer as direct and immersive a learning experience as education abroad. Thus, education abroad is directly aligned with the community college mission; contributes to credit transfer,career and technical preparation and community education; and is student-focused”
