David Harrison: International Education Much More Than Study Abroad
from The Huffington Post
As high school seniors evaluate colleges and universities across the country, David Harrison says he's met many who are looking to identify programs that offer an "international education." For most, this simply means looking for opportunities to study abroad for all or part of a year. However, thinking about global education in terms of simply studying abroad is an approach that is far too shortsighted. In addition to overseas experiences, a true international education constantly exposes students to ideas and issues that define today's world. This should happen when students are studying on campus as well as when they're studying abroad, and it should be taking place no matter what a student happens to be studying.
