Education Abroad virtual summer opportunities: Do you want to think globally while learning locally? Staying home this summer doesn’t mean you can’t make the world your classroom! The Center for Education Abroad, in conjunction with international partners, offers several virtual global opportunities for students during the summer 2020 term. These virtual opportunities are not meant to take the place of a physical abroad experience, however they offer valuable academic and intercultural experiences and exposure to cross-cultural competencies. Visit the Center for Education Abroad website to learn more about your virtual summer opportunities.
