Study Abroad Name Change Highlights Growing International Opportunities
The Texas A&M University Study Abroad Programs Office announced today that the office will be renamed to “Education Abroad” effective Aug. 1.
“The new name highlights our ongoing commitment to support a broader sense of what ‘education’ means to Aggies, from coursework for credit to internships, volunteering and service,” Education Abroad Executive Director Dr. Holly Hudson said.
In 2018 the Institute of International Education (IIE) announced that Texas A&M is the No. 1 public university in the nation in number of study abroad students for the third consecutive year. More than 5,500 students gain international experiences each year, and the university continues to grow and expand those opportunities to include international work, research and other activities.
Education Abroad will host an open house to celebrate the name change and showcase the office’s programs Thursday, Sept. 5 in the Pavilion.
