Dartmouth Leads the Ivies in Study Abroad

Dartmouth is the top-ranked Ivy League institution and sixth overall among doctorate-granting institutions for percentage of undergraduates studying abroad, according to a report released this week by the Institute of International Education.

More than 64 percent of Dartmouth’s Class of 2011 studied abroad.

“International perspectives and experiences are integral to the liberal arts and will be invaluable to our graduates. It is gratifying to see this recognition of our study-abroad programs,” says Lynn Higgins, the Frank J. Guarini Associate Dean for International Studies and Interdisciplinary Programs. “What is more important than rankings, however, is our drive to create and maintain the very best possible international study opportunities for our students.”
