70%
of student-athletes regret not being able to study abroad due to their athletic commitments.
That's about to change.

Pledge to L.E.A.D. by 2020

Join the L.E.A.D. campaign - Leveraging Education Abroad for Development - by pledging 10% of student-athletes and athletic staff at your institution will participate in an abroad program by 2020.  

Students who study abroad:

  • have higher GPAs

  • have higher graduation rates

  • have higher starting salaries

  • are twice as likely to land career-related jobs

 

What Statistics Show About Study Abroad

The L.E.A.D. campaign is mobilizing athletic departments across the country to leverage education abroad for development of student-athletes and athletic staff.  Leaders of tomorrow require global competencies to better understand global teams and student-athletes are getting left behind. Now is the time to L.E.A.D.
