Why Study Abroad?
- Studying abroad is a great resume-builder and may even open up new opportunities for graduate school or give you an edge over other job candidates.
- With increasing globalization, it is important to have second/foreign language skills, problem-solving skills and international knowledge with a global perspective.
- You can earn credits toward graduation, and with some detailed planning, it will not delay your graduation date.
- As a student, you are eligible for scholarships and financial aid to assist with payment for your program.
A Message of Solidarity Against Racism
Events in the USA continue to highlight the racial prejudice and inequity that exists in our society. The UWM Center for International Education wishes to express our continued commitment to education and understanding to combat racism and our solidarity with those working toward social justice.
UWM’s Guiding Values demonstrate our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusivity. CIE affirms and celebrates these guiding principles. Our staff passionately believes that international education has the ability to bring people together and foster greater understanding among people from diverse backgrounds and perspectives. We are stronger because of the diverse perspectives represented on campus, in our classrooms and workspaces.
Now is the time for us to act and model the type of society we wish to have. We must exercise our right to vote, educate ourselves on our own biases, and support engagement in social justice. We make a promise to do our part to break down racial barriers and we invite you to do so as well.
