Study Abroad Collaboration


Across the New York Six, it is possible for students to study on six of the world’s seven continents. While individual colleges cannot offer this breadth of programming on their own, we hope to open up programs to students across the Consortium on a space-available basis. We will learn from the experience of Hobart and William Smith Colleges and Union College, which together established the successful Partnership for Global Education with the support of the Mellon Foundation. The program will serve as a model for study abroad program sharing for the other members of the Consortium. In addition, this group will explore best practices and opportunities for collaboration on several back-office functions such as risk management, banking, employment, visa services, and SEVIS (federal Student Exchange and Visitor Information System) services, among others.
