Study Abroad in Asia book
Study abroad in Asia enables students to encounter the diversities of Asia and enables them to know the daily rhythms of life in distant localities. This chapter presents a list of challenges suggestive of those likely to be encountered by educational institutions as they create or participate in study abroad programs in Asia. Study abroad developed largely as a humanistic inquiry into the European heritage of contemporary America. Study abroad in Asia not only builds on the tradition of liberal inquiry, it is its culmination. Japan in particular appears to draw back large numbers of study-abroad participants following graduation. Recent works also suggest strategies for expanding the home campus curriculum to respond to the challenges posed by students going on and returning from study abroad. A significant symmetry characterizes the positions of faculty and staff at Asian institutions and American institutions collaborating on study abroad.
