  • Generation Study Abroad Green Paper: As a result of the first "Generation Study Abroad Think Tank" in New York on March 12, professionals from higher education, NGOs, associations, non-profits, government and the private sector came together to brainstorm ideas surrounding the question: What will it take to double? The outcomes from the day have been documented in the first Generation Study Abroad "green paper," so titled because it has been created not as a final product but a living document to which additional ideas will be added. This green paper lays the foundation for an ongoing discussion around how to increase the number of students studying abroad in the short term and to shift the paradigm over the long term.
