To date, more than 700 partners from the U.S. and abroad have joined Generation Study Abroad with a bold vision to double the number of U.S. students studying abroad by the end of the decade. The latest Open Doors data showed 5% growth in study abroad, but much more is needed to achieve our ambitious goal.

Thank you to all of our attendees, sponsors, exhibitors, speakers and program and media partners for a successful Summit. We appreciate your continued support for Generation Study Abroad.
