What is Generation Study Abroad?

UT Tyler's study abroad program has a new partnership with Generation Study Abroad, an organization dedicated to sending more students overseas for life-changing and resume-building study and experience. Through education abroad, students can gain important global competencies such as language, cross-cultural communications, empathy, adaptability, and problem solving skills. Strong evidence indicates that students who study abroad have better grades, experience less attrition and graduate from college at higher rates than students who do not study abroad, and have a competitive edge on the job market.
