Abstract

The Institute of International Education reported on November 17, 2014, that 289,408 U.S. university students studied abroad for academic credit in academic year 2012-2013, the year preceding Dr. Finley-Croswhite’s spring 2014 ODU “Paris/Auschwitz” Study Abroad course/program. 2012-2013 Study Abroad enrollments are a 2.1% increase over the previous academic year, and they are expected to rise in the coming years. Study Abroad enrollments have more than tripled over the past two decades; nevertheless, only 1.5% of U.S. university students studied abroad in 2012-2013. Thus, the ODU students who participated in the 2014 “Paris/Auschwitz” course/program – and all U.S. university students who study abroad – are very much the exception.
