The Case for International Education

There is a growing body of research related to international and intercultural learning in higher education, including study abroad. Recent studies have demonstrated a positive impact of study abroad participation on student retention and success towards completion of a college degree. A recent article published in Inside Higher Ed summarizes the research.

The Center for Global Education at the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies collects, edits, and provides a searchable database of study abroad research. UW Bothell student, Aaron Huston, compiled a bibliography of intercultural education research after returning from a study abroad experience in Japan.
