Cultural Immersion

At CIS Abroad we are committed to helping your students “live the local life.” Built into each of our programs is our La Vida Local culture series. Facilitated by the CIS Abroad Site Director, the activities combine high energy group challenges with more focused cultural encounters and reflections.

Students tell us that they engaged with the local culture. Your programs provide that immersive experience they are searching for.

Inclusion & Access

We admire the fact that the world is comprised of people with many different identities, cultures, belief systems, and levels of ability, and all are needed in order to make this world a more understanding and accepting place. CIS Abroad is committed to inclusion and access and across the U.S., is working closely with study abroad offices and college faculty to encourage all students to participate in education abroad programs.

I am impressed with how inclusive their overall operations are in terms of creating programs for students from all walks of life.

Risk Management

Participant safety is our number one priority at CIS Abroad. We know our greatest responsibility is to develop and operate programs with the health and safety of our participants at the forefront of our decisions. We also know that studying or working abroad involves a certain amount of risk. Our job is to mitigate these risks while providing the wonderful opportunities that only life abroad can offer.

I know there is somebody always paying attention. We had serious health & safety incident last year and the on-site staff was very responsive.
