Ohio University's Office of Education Abroad recently partnered with International Education Programs (IEP), expanding the number and types of programs available to students and raising awareness of all study abroad options on campus.
Through the partnership, IEP will provide affordable semester, summer, internship and customized programs in more than 30 countries, according to Kari Beall, a full-time IEP advisor who works out of the Walter International Education Center.
"We hope that by opening new destinations and increasing study abroad awareness on campus, we can assist Ohio University in creating a robust study abroad culture and see more OHIO students participating in an education abroad experience," Beall said.
Starting this fall, new programs to Australia, China, Costa Rica, Ecuador, England, France, Italy, New Zealand, Peru, South Africa, Spain, Thailand and Turkey will be added to the Ohio University programs list.
IEP also specializes in creating customized faculty-led programs, providing a convenient option for faculty members interested in taking students abroad. Faculty members are encouraged to utilize IEP's presence on campus to help with the logistical and administrative details of their study abroad programs.
"The Office of Education Abroad is very excited about our new collaboration with IEP and the expanded opportunities it offers our students," said Catherine Marshall, director of the Office of Education Abroad.
