The Study Abroad Association is a collaborative effort between colleges and universities across the United States dedicated to increasing study abroad participation among students and faculty on their campuses.
The association assists colleges and universities in reaching their international education goals through customizing the most affordable and academically sound study abroad programs. Additionally, SAA helps institutions and students with booking discounted airfare, designing promotional materials, providing faculty development workshops on how to lead study abroad programs, organizing fund raisers, providing risk management and pre-travel safety demonstrations, providing packing demonstrations, tracking travel advisories, assisting with visas and passports, and assisting with marketing and promoting each college's programs. All of this is done with the intention of making study abroad more affordable and, therefore, more accessible to all students.
