Spread the Word about Students Connecting Our World

Graduation cap Not a Student? Not a problem!

If you are a study abroad advisor, campus leader, program provider, a teacher, a parent, or in a position where you work or interact with students, we could use your help to spread the word about Students Connecting Our World.

Students are valuable voices for international education. They add diversity and energy to Connecting Our World’s advocacy efforts, and their stories paint an authentic, personal picture of the value of study abroad and of a generation growing up in a global world. The larger Connecting Our World community wants to welcome them and offer them a home to discuss how international education affects them and how they can help connect our world.
