Global Initiatives

Study Abroad

UW Bothell has joined over 150 institutions nationwide in the Institute of International Education (IIE)’s Generation Study Abroad initiative to double the number of American students who study abroad by the end of the decade. Adding an international component to the college experience not only helps students develop global skills, such as adaptability, intercultural communication, and problem-solving, but also shows positive correlation with graduation rates and post-graduate success. Our commitment is to increase study abroad participation to 15% of all UW Bothell students graduating during Academic Year 2019-20.
