INDIANAPOLIS – Study abroad initiatives developed at the Kelley School of Business Indianapolis may be used as a model across the country.
Kelley Indy faculty and staff members are traveling to Washington, D.C. to present at the 2016 Institute of International Education (IIE) Summit on Generation Study Abroad.
Generation Study Abroad, a five-year initiative with a goal of doubling the number of U.S. students studying abroad.
IUPUI has taken the pledge to increase the number of undergraduates studying abroad. In fact, the campus reported its study abroad participation had already jumped 21 percent – attributing the increase to more spring break opportunities and a significant rise in the number of Kelley Indy and health sciences students participating in study abroad.
The 2016 IIE Summit in Washington, D.C. will bring together hundreds of educators and government and business leaders to discuss how to ensure a study abroad experience is part of students’ education.
Eric Raider, associate director of student engagement at Kelley Indianapolis, attended the conference last year and will be one of the staff members presenting this year.
