SMITHFIELD – Bryant University students are taking a global approach to their education. A national survey shows Bryant finished among the top 15 colleges and universities in its classification for students participating in study-abroad programs.

The annual rankings released by the Institute of International Education in partnership with the U.S. State Department had the university placing 14th, with more than 45 percent of its graduating seniors participating in a for-credit, study-abroad program during their undergraduate careers.

“Providing the diverse perspectives necessary for success as a global citizen is a critical component in Bryant’s strategic plan for academics,” said David Lux, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.

Over the past decade the school estimates that student participation in study-abroad programs has grown by 185 percent. •
