abstract
Within institutions of higher education, study abroad is a high impact practice that can enhance a college student’s education and global perspective, as well has help push forward the mission of a university. The field of international education strives to send students abroad on programs in safe and secure locations, allowing students to make progress towards their college degree while immersing themselves into a new culture. While institution evaluate the risk assessments for their overseas programs, not all risk can be predicted. Over the years, international educators have navigated through various threats to student safety, involving a myriad of countries throughout the world. However, the field of international education had never encountered a global pandemic until 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted study abroad programming, causing programs to suspend worldwide and leaving uncertainty for the future of international education.
