Study abroad, an increasingly important component of undergraduate programs generally, is becoming essential to academic majors across the curriculum. Absolutely crucial to advancing study abroad programs and enrollment at any college is the involvement of key campus decision makers as stakeholders—i.e., the president or chancellor, provost, deans, and key faculty.

This paper presents a case study of an agile, successful study abroad model that features a cost-effective financial structure. This model may be of help to other colleges and universities that want to create a program on their campuses, or improve the one they already have.
