Generation Study Abroad

In 2014, Washington State University joined Generation Study Abroad, a nationwide initiative to increase the number of students learning in other countries. This commitment aligns with WSU’s strategic goal to graduate globally engaged citizens.

WSU has pledged to increase the number of students studying abroad annually to 1,000 by 2019.

We are committed to supporting students to go abroad by expanding opportunities, encouraging college commitment, increasing funding and eliminating barriers.

A global experience adds meaningful skills to a student’s résumé, broadens perspectives, and builds language and cultural competencies.
