Why should students travel abroad?

 

The Community College Times article “Study Abroad Increases Access, Opportunities,” by Rosalind Raby and Gary Rhodes, describes the value of international travel:  “For study abroad programs to grow at community colleges, there needs to be a shared understanding that such programs are not a luxury for the few, but that they are one of the more effective ways to help students obtain international literacy skills that will assist them to transfer to four-year institutions or proceed into the workplace.”  Raby and Rhodes describe several benefits of international travel for community college students:  “changes in perception and attitude toward global relationships, increased interest in politics and social service, significant learning curve growth in interpersonal skills, academic performance and reduction of cultural stereotypes.”  Additionally, student travelers “may improve language skills” and “relearn heritage cultures and histories.”  Finally, “for students who have not traveled beyond their own neighborhoods, studying abroad becomes a life-altering experience.”
