“Studying abroad is more than just taking a class in another country. It’s an enriching experience that allows you to open your eyes to what you can’t see in a UT classroom. It opens your mind to different ways of living and thinking, and really makes you a global citizen and accountable for creating the change that we say we’re here to create.”
– Chelsea Jones, studied abroad in China and Ghana
