The U.S. State Department has launched a new website and mobile friendly resource that provides a range of vital information related to study abroad. Through clear and useful search options, students, study abroad professionals and parents can locate pertinent information, including webpages dedicated to searching for study abroad country destinations, country-specific visa information, scholarship opportunities, featured study abroad news articles, travel alerts and warnings, as well as links for students who are already abroad. To promote this new resource, the State Department encourages organizations and institutions to share this information through their social media accounts in order to better reach student populations with #StudentsAbroad.
Inside Study Abroad has launched the first podcast geared toward international education professionals. The podcast will feature thought-leaders, engage in debates, and share real strategies for international education professionals. The first few podcast episodes include interviews with Cynthia Banks, Founder of GlobaLinks Learning Abroad & the Global Leadership League; Brandon Lee, Co-Founder and CEO of Terra Dotta; and Mark Lenhart, Executive Director of CET Academic Programs, among others.
Commitment Partner Spotlight
Misericorida University, a Generation Study Abroad Commitment Partner since 2014, has seen 140% growth of their original Generation Study Abroad goal to double the number of students studying abroad or completing a service learning trip by the end of the decade. As part of a campus-wide effort to expand and improve service and study abroad experiences for students at Misericordia University, this year’s Commencement ceremonies gave special recognition to graduates who studied abroad or completed a service learning experience.  Each student received a special graduation stole to wear as part of their Commencement regalia, with different colored stoles representing the country they visited.
At this year’s annual NAFSA Conference in Denver, EP-Nuffic, the organization for internationalization in education in the Netherlands, announced that the organization will join IIE’s Generation Study Abroad initiative as a country partner. EP-Nuffic pledges to take concrete steps to expand access and opportunities for U.S. students wishing to study in the Netherlands by removing bureaucratic obstacles, providing advisory services to U.S. institutions and individuals who wish to make contact with Dutch institutions, providing relevant information to students about settling in, studying and working in the Netherlands, and organizing activities for U.S. students.
