DU No. 3 in the country for study abroad participation

DU has improved upon its already stellar ranking for study abroad education, climbing in November to the third spot in the annual Open Doors report from the Institute of International Education. More than 77% of DU’s undergraduate students participate in study abroad programming, based on IIE data for the 2017–18 academic year.

“DU has made a very intentional commitment to international education, and students see that,” says Stephanie Roberts, interim director of DU’s Office of International Education. “As our world becomes more and more interconnected, intentionally developing intercultural competencies and skills is essential. Study abroad is one way to help students develop those skills, and we are excited to be part of their growth and exploration.”

DU’s Cherrington Global Scholars program offsets plane tickets and student visa fees to allow eligible undergraduate students to complete a term in another country for an amount comparable to on-campus costs.
