A Small College Strategy to Scale-up Study Abroad

This project leverages Innovation Fund and GSO learning to enable small colleges to scale-up learning abroad.

Through the project, College of the Rockies is formalizing COIL as a sustainable internationalization option and on-ramp to physical mobility. The college works to address the small-college-challenge of scale by developing a course and opportunity abroad that is of widespread interest to students at small colleges. And, the college creates a stronger evidence base by applying the Theory of Planned Behaviour to research complex reasons why students persist in choosing not to study abroad even it is affordable.

Project outcomes is able to be replicated at other small colleges and scale-up learning abroad system-wide.
