Campaign Seeks to Recruit Teachers as Study Abroad Advocates

February 5, 2015

A new campaign seeks to get 1,000 K-12 teachers to take a pledge to encourage their students to study abroad. The effort is part of the Institute of International Education’s broader Generation Study Abroad initiative, which aims to double study abroad participation numbers.

“To achieve our goal of doubling study abroad by the end of the decade, it is essential to work with teachers and support them in building a pipeline of students who are prepared to take advantage of international opportunities,” IIE’s president and CEO, Allan E. Goodman, said in a press release.
