IIE Summit 2016: Generation Study Abroad


The 2016 IIE Summit on Generation Study Abroad will take place on October 23-25, 2016 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC and registrations are open now

 


The 2016 IIE Summit is part of IIE’s Generation Study Abroad®, a five year initiative to double the number of U.S. students studying abroad by the end of the decade. Generation Study Abroad seeks to significantly increase and diversify participation by bringing higher education institutions, employers, governments, K-12 teachers, associations, and others together to build on current best practices and find new ways to extend study abroad opportunities and resources to tens of thousands of college students whose needs are not currently served by existing study abroad programs.

The Summit will bring education, government and business leaders and journalists together for action-oriented discussion on how to ensure international experience is a key part of a 21st century education and make study abroad opportunities available to all. It is more important than ever that U.S. students graduate with the international, intercultural, and language skills that they will need to help solve today’s global challenges.
