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.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020-2021 academic year presented a number of challenges as Penn Abroad sought to deliver global programs to Penn students. While student mobility was not possible, Penn Abroad continued to offer global engagement, support, and outreach to students, faculty, and the campus community.  We invite you to review the Penn Abroad 2020-2021 Annual Report to find information about how we approached this challenging year, our student engagement efforts, and our future plans under Penn's Strategic Framework for Global Initiatives.
