Agree that study abroad is for everyone? Participate in CIS Abroad’s #IamIcan Campaign!

CIS Abroad named finalist in Sept. 19 PIEoneer Awards

For the second year, CIS Abroad is engaging students across U.S. campuses in our #IamICan Campaign, and we want you to be a part of it!

The goal of the campaign is to celebrate different identities and empower students with diverse backgrounds, abilities, and beliefs to understand that study abroad is an opportunity for them. 

Celebrating Every Student

We celebrate the fact that the world is comprised of people with many different identities, cultures, belief systems, and levels of ability and that all are needed in order to make the world a more understanding and accepting place. The beauty of the #IamIcan campaign is that it doesn’t target a specific demographic, but rather students have the power to choose how they’d like to share their identities. Some participants focused on being first-generation college students, while others focused on an academic major, or being high financial need and having to juggle full-time work and school.
