ODI Education Abroad
Enable ODI students to pursue their dreams of studying in a faraway land

Most Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) students never get the chance to have a life-altering experience abroad because they simply can’t afford it. Only about eight percent of students who study abroad come from ODI.


Your generosity will support scholarships for ODI students to study abroad. Our students say the study abroad program has shaped their lives by opening their minds to new ideas while gaining experiences that left them more independent and confident.


Your gift of any size will help cover passport fees, luggage, and reduce airfare. Every bit can make a difference, and enable ODI students to pursue their dreams of studying in a faraway land. 


Please give to provide our students with a learning opportunity they will never forget.


Are you staff or faculty? You can make your gift via payroll deduction.
