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.
