CC Recognized as a Leader in Study Abroad
Colorado College is recognized in the Open Doors 2010 Report on International Educational Exchange as a school in which more than 70 percent of its students study abroad at some point during their undergraduate careers.
The Open Doors report is published annually by the Institute of International Education with funding from the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. For the first time in the 25 years that the data has been tracked, the total number of U.S. students studying abroad for academic credit decreased, albeit by 0.8 percent. However, the report found notable increases in the number of U.S. students studying in less traditional destinations. Fifteen of the top 25 destinations were outside of Western Europe and nineteen were countries where English is not a primary language.
While large institutions dominate in terms of total numbers of students studying abroad, many smaller institutions send a higher proportion of their students abroad. Colorado College is one of 29 such institutions.
