This session will focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) students' motivations for studying abroad and the value of their experiences. With STEM fields underrepresented in study abroad, we hope to share student stories that encourage future STEM students to take the leap. Survey data from STEM student feedback will highlight: why STEM students study abroad, types of experiences, skills gained abroad for future careers or academic pursuits, perceived barriers to studying abroad, and ways to meet those challenges. Part of the session will focus on learning more about academic advisor perspectives on STEM students studying abroad, including benefits and challenges.
