Get out there.

Today, I began a new chapter in my career as president of the National Student Exchange (NSE). A not-for-profit education consortium with 170 member campuses throughout the United States and Canada, NSE facilitates the academic exchange of 2,200 undergraduate students annually.

Why encourage study away?

  • 58% of students go to a college within 100 miles of their hometown
  • 72% of students stay in-state for college
  • Only 11% of students choose a campus 500 miles away or further

We have a great big, beautiful country (and continent) full of people, culture, and adventure. Encourage your students to get out there and see it.
