Founding Director and Chief Innovation Officer of the Global Risk Mitigation Foundation, Dr. Eric A. Canny, had a chapter published discussing the positive correlations between study abroad and student success broadly, as well as the ways in which study abroad programs operate from a student success model. Both may help influence home-campus practitioners in working with all students. The work explored the research findings of the high-impact nature of study abroad linked to learning outcomes, as data shows deep student learning, including self-reflection, which could be indicators of student success. Finally, the chapter drew correlations between these topics and international on-site models of student success to support this transformational and challenging experience for students.
