A record 2,198 Students Studied Abroad in 2015-2016

Transforming the global learning experience

The world gets smaller when it is well understood. Its economy, its environment, its challenges more clearly defined. More Purdue students think globally today. More of them lived and learned abroad in 2015-16 than ever. For some, it was for the summer, for others a semester or a year. A global focus is a wise focus. It leads to understanding. Understanding shrinks our world.
