Historically, the field of education abroad has lacked extensive data demonstrating its outcomes – educational, professional, and personal. The Forum’s Outcomes Assessment and Research Committee addresses this need by providing resources to help Forum members assess education abroad outcomes, and encouraging and supporting research on education abroad.

The mission of the Outcomes Assessment and Research Committee is to assist administrators and faculty in identifying, assessing, and fostering positive outcomes in students’ academic, intercultural, and personal development through education abroad.
