By the Numbers

Each year Penn sends over 2,500 Penn students to more than 50 countries around the world on semester study abroad, summer internships, service learning, and short-term programs. Penn Abroad delivers a wide range of program options and is committed to providing a meaningful global experience to every Penn student.

As the world reopens from a pandemic that shuttered many borders since March 2020, Penn Abroad has welcomed the opportunity to relaunch our global programming efforts with dedicated students eager to add a meaningful global experience to their time at Penn. The Penn Abroad team worked this year to support students interested in pursuing such opportunities, drawing on the support of many across campus and our partners globally to ensure the safe resumption of programming opportunities for our students. We invite you to review the Penn Abroad 2021-2022 Annual Report to find information about how we approached this year, our student engagement efforts, and our future plans under Penn's Strategic Framework for Global Initiatives.
