Our Role Within the Global Community
Tulane's Office of Study Abroad facilitates the pursuit of academic exchange and study abroad for the Tulane undergraduate community. Through the close curation of a list of academic programs that meet the academic and personal needs of Tulane students and one-on-one and group advising, the OSA sends approximately 500 Tulane students abroad each year.
Working with other offices in the Center for Global Education, the OSA also conducts educational and informational programming to foster relationships between globally-minded community members and to enrich the sense of "the international" of Tulane's New Orleans campus.
We believe that assisting students in the articulation of their personal and academic goals for study abroad and the pursuit of these goals will help them acquire region and country-specific knowledge, empathize with differing ways of being in the world, and apply these newfound skills in their future endeavors.
