Study Abroad

The benefits of international study are personal, societal, and professional: Study abroad broadens perspectives and cultivates open-minded leaders. During home stays, students consider the experiences of people in their home contexts, inspiring empathetic connections that promote a more tolerant and just society. And, future employers view the accompanying cultural competency as increasingly valuable.

At St. Joseph’s Marist College in Cape Town, South Africa, I came to understand the importance of meeting each individual student’s needs and teachers’ roles in promoting equity and social justice. With this new perspective, I took the skills that I developed abroad and applied them to my experiences when I returned.
