ISU Looks to Expand its Study Abroad Program

As part of a new coalition, ISU wants to double the number of students studying abroad.
NORMAL- As the workplace becomes more global, Illinois State University is looking to expand its study abroad program.

ISU recently joined the Institute of International Education's initiative to double the number of students who study abroad.

Currently more than 400 Illinois State students take part in international studies.

The university hopes to be able to increase that number to 800 students over the next five years.

Coordinators say studying overseas is an excellent way for students to gain international skills and expertise.

"It teaches students to go outside their comfort zone. To learn flexibility, adaptability, and very important skills for today's global, intercultural workplace," said Samantha Potempa, Study Abroad Coordinator.

At Illinois State, students have the opportunity to study abroad in 60 countries including Africa and Europe.
