    Summary
    Every year over 100,000 American students travel the world to participate in study and volunteer abroad programs. There are many different types of these programs, each is offering its own level of community engagement and voice. Many of these programs operate by focusing solely on the student experience and rarely consider the important value and sacrifice of the communities they work in. Still others engage community leaders and organizations they operate in but fail to recognize the importance and power of a mutual learning partnership, based on dialogue, transparency, and respect. These challenges are significant enough but are even more worrisome when considered in the context of the growing market for study abroad, short-term immersion, and service and volunteer experiences. This marketplace is so unregulated and lacking in transparency that New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo briefly launched an investigation of several university study abroad offices and third-party providers.
