In-Demand Skills for Our Interconnected World

In collaboration with the university's International Advisory Council and its Study Abroad Committee, the Study Abroad Office (SAO) has developed common learning outcomes for its faculty-directed study abroad programs. As a high-impact practice, study abroad incorporates experiential and project-based learning that can help students develop cognitive, intrapersonal, and interpersonal skills across personal, professional, and academic domains. In addition to the discipline-specific outcomes faculty directors incorporate into their programs, UIC Study Abroad Office programs are designed to help students develop important transferrable global and intercultural skills.
