Decades of Study Abroad History

Sixty-seven years of excellence in global education began on the saddle of a bicycle, for two dollars a day. In the summer of 1948, the world looked ahead to a brighter future. Gone was the extreme cataclysm and privation of the Second World War, but deep scars remained for the nations of Europe and their people. Moreover, the cooperative spirit of educational exchange between nations, which had flourished modestly prior to the war’s advent, was all but nonexistent.
