Models for U.S. Study Abroad to Indonesia

Models for U.S. Study Abroad to Indonesia presents best practices for U.S. practitioners developing sustainable study abroad programs to Indonesia and is the culmination of the U.S.-Indonesia Partnership Program for Study Abroad Capacity (USIPP), sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Launched in 2010 by IIE, in collaboration with the Indonesian International Education Foundation (IIEF), USIP brought together six U.S. and six Indonesian universities to collaborate on expanding academic partnerships between U.S and Indonesian institutions. Opportunities and challenges garnered over the course of developing four new USIPP-funded study abroad programs to Indonesia form the basis of this white paper.

Models for U.S. Study Abroad to Indonesia begins with an overview of each program, specifically describing program design, implementation, and sustainability measures. The second portion of the report presents a comparison of the four programs, highlighting similarities and differences to help foster the design of future programs. The report ends with a series of recommendations to help U.S.-based study abroad practitioners develop future study abroad programs to Indonesia.
