SFA and Generation Study Abroad

SFA is now a partner in Generation Study Abroad!

Generation Study Abroad is a five-year initiative of the Institute of International Education (IIE) to mobilize resources and commitments with the goal of doubling the number of U.S. students studying abroad by the end of the decade.

SFA has committed to raising the number of students studying abroad from 1% to 3% in the next five years. We are investigating strategies that will build a study abroad culture on our campus and allow more students to have an international experience.
