See images from our St. Louis Generation Study Abroad Symposium event below!

We thank Generation Study Abroad commitment partner Webster University and Dr. Julian Z. Schuster, Provost, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Webster University for hosting and welcoming attendees of the Mid-West Generation Study Abroad International Symposium. We also thank our keynote speaker Russ Cottle, Senior Vice President, Professional Services and Business Development at Jordan Lawrence and our engaged attendees for their participation.

During this full-day event we convened our Commitment Partners and industry professionals in the region to engage in solution-driven and action-oriented dialogue to push the envelope on how we think and "do" study abroad as we work together to achieve our ambitious goal of doubling by the end of the decade and to address the significant value and growing interest and intersection of study abroad, global talent and workforce development.
