Global Education

Wade WatkinsTravel and study abroad are life changing experiences for college students. I've been working with students for more than a decade, helping expose them to global education opportunities and I’ve seen firsthand the impact it has. Whether it’s a course on one of our campuses, a short-term study abroad program, or a semester or more studying in a different country, it can be the spark that leads a student to a new interest, major or career option. These incredible experiences give students a competitive edge over their peers, which is incredibly attractive to potential employers in all fields.
