|International education is a key tool for building "bridges"--connections between countries and cultures. In the post-9/11 world, language and culture awareness are critical for national security, political diplomacy and global economic competition. |
When ordinary people of any age travel outside their comfort zones as international students, their "us vs. them" mentality will likely change into a multicultural respect for others, resulting in a stronger worldwide coalition of friendship, understanding and goodwill. Maturity, practical independence, self-confidence and greater self-awareness, and improved skills for building better relationships with others are just a few personal benefits young people gain from international educational experiences.
On a practical level, they become fluent in other languages, better understand other cultures and have a greater appreciation of their own, are able to better determine their career choices and begin building resumes. Employers place a high value on applicants who have had international education experiences and the demand among many professions for foreign language skills and experience in cross-culture awareness opens doors for more career options.
