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 will formalize COIL as a sustainable internationalization option and on-ramp to physical mobility. The college will work to address the small-college-challenge of scale by developing a course and opportunity abroad that will be of widespread interest to students at small colleges. And, the college will create 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 will then be able to be replicated at other small colleges and scale-up learning abroad system-wide.
