Nearly 30 students from The Ohio State University – including jazz musicians, dancers, and rappers – will travel to China March 7-17 to share their uniquely American art forms with audiences in cities and universities – and even an embassy – throughout China.
The Ohio State University has joined Generation Study Abroad, a five-year initiative launched by the Institute of International Education to double the number of U.S. college students studying abroad by the end of the decade.
Joining Generation Study Abroad will help Ohio State engage educators, governments, associations and others to drive meaningful action to increase the number of students who have the opportunity to gain international experience through academic study abroad programs.
Ohio State is currently ranked 14th in the nation in the number of students studying abroad. Study abroad enrollment figures significantly increased from 1,716 in 2011-12 to 2,426 in 2012-13.
“Ohio State is committed to lifting study abroad to new heights by engaging our faculty university-wide and offering new and innovative programs that will exponentially benefit our students no matter their discipline.” said William Brustein, vice provost for global strategies and international affairs.
