Steven Wright

ST. CLOUD – St. Cloud State University is working to double its students studying abroad.

St. Cloud State University is one of three Minnesota colleges participating in Generation Study Abroad. The five year initiative brings leaders in education, business and government together to double to number of U.S. college students studying abroad.

More than 350 St. Cloud State students participated in education abroad programs in the 2012-2013 school year. By decades end that number should be at 700.

SCSU President Earl Potter says the school recognizes the value of education abroad programs.

“We recognize the value our Education Abroad program  has in preparing students to live and succeed in a global community in the 21st century,” Potter says.

St. Cloud State is one of over 160 participating schools in the program. The other Minnesota schools include the University of Minnesota, Hamline University and Concordia College in Moorhead.
