We are pleased to announce that the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) will join the Generation Study Abroad commitment. Success in today’s global society requires experience and leadership that drives education beyond traditional boundaries. At RIT we are committed to expanding opportunities for global education, international connections, work experience and cultural exchanges.
The goals of the IIE Generation Study Abroad Initiative are consistent with the RIT vision of preparing students for innovative and successful careers in a global society. Through this initiative, we are excited to have the support of IIE as well as the network of other like-minded institutions. Our RIT Generation Study Abroad commitment is to increase participation in education and experiences abroad by 10% each year. By the end of the decade, this goal will result in almost a 100% increase in RIT student participation.
