State University of New York Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher announced that a new partnership with the Institute of International Education (IIE) will support a 25 percent increase in study abroad participation by students across SUNY between now and 2020. The announcement was made at SUNY’s fourth annual Critical Issues in Higher Education Conference, where the power of collective impact efforts like Generation Study Abroad are being explored by international thought leaders. SUNY is the first comprehensive system of higher education to join IIE’s Generation Study Abroad initiative, which aims to double the number of college students in the U.S. who study abroad.

"Increasing study abroad will bolster student success and help SUNY meet its goals for educating career-ready graduates who are prepared to take on the challenges of today’s economy and meet the needs of a global workforce," said Chancellor Zimpher. "SUNY is proud not only to join the Generation Study Abroad commitment but to hold it up as an example of collective impact strategy at work."

"The State University of New York’s commitment to Generation Study Abroad is a significant boost to our global effort," said IIE President Allan E. Goodman, "and we commend Chancellor Zimpher and the presidents at each of SUNY’s campuses for their support and commitment."
