Our study abroad participation rates are a testament to our institutional investment in education abroad in a number of ways, including developing numerous faculty-led programs that allow students to engage in active learning in global contexts; establishing international partnerships to expand opportunities for students; and offering a variety of scholarships and other funding resources to make study abroad experience accessible to students from a wide range of backgrounds.  If you are interested in making a gift to support education abroad at WKU, click here.
