“These were phenomenal programs and SAI went above and beyond! Housing was perfect and communication was always excellent. SAI staff could not have been more accommodating!” Dr. Donna Albano, Professor, Stockton University School of Business (Faculty Leader, Italy and Spain)
Customized study abroad programs offer faculty leaders unique and innovative opportunities for teaching their students and helping them connect with course content in new and meaningful ways. Students are exposed to different cultures and are challenged to step outside of their comfort zones, resulting in greater global engagement and cultural competence. Custom programs also provide increased access to students that might not normally be able to go abroad and inspire further international endeavors and career paths. SAI recognizes that successful programs are collaborative efforts, built on a commitment to academic excellence and enhancing cultural awareness; they result in life-changing experiences and lasting memories for both students and faculty alike.
