Study Abroad

For academic year 2023-24, DU’s study abroad programs will be paused to allow for the university to reevaluate how best to support faculty and students in pursuing international learning opportunities in the future. Please check back to the website for updates or contact Dr. Wayne Sneath, Vice Provost for Academics at wsneath@davenport.edu

Why Study Abroad?

Preparation for success in today’s global workforce means acquiring the combination of knowledge, skills and attitudes often referred to as “global competencies.”  Students must become knowledgeable about other countries, develop cross-cultural communication skills, and acquire the sensitivity that enables them to appreciate and work with diverse cultures.  One of the best ways to become more globally competent is to experience day-to-day life in another country with the preparation and guidance that enables insights and understanding.
