Webster University has committed to doubling the number of students that study abroad by 2020. This is a great challenge and everyone at Webster is key in the efforts to achieve that goal.

“We must ensure that this generation and future generations of the U.S. workforce possess knowledge of other countries and cultures and are competent in languages other than English. It is more important now than ever for Americans to gain global competency skills so that they can succeed in the global marketplace.”
– Generation Study Abroad. 

Generation Study Abroad is a five-year initiative of the Institute of International Education (IIE) to mobilize resources with the goal of doubling the number of U.S. students studying abroad by the end of the decade.
