Some of the benefits student get by studying abroad include:

  • Employability
  • Working within a diverse climate
  • Experience of the “other” (important given our racial demographics in EA)
  • Thinking/Acting creatively in a fluctuating environment
  • Foreign language skills
  • Intercultural development

UD’s SAIL Program (Semester Abroad and Intercultural Leadership) is a specific example of how we are being more intentional about intercultural development and positive intercultural engagement within the UD community.

Diversity and inclusion are core values at the University of Dayton, but bringing together people from different national, racial, and religious backgrounds sometimes can be difficult, even in a welcoming community.

At the symposium Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus, held Jan. 23-25, 2018, the Alumni Chair in the Humanities invited students, faculty, and staff from all parts of the globe to share stories about their experiences at home and on campus in hopes of strengthening the University’s inclusive excellence.
