At CEA, we seek to make the study abroad experience a reality for as many students as possible, and that includes students who come from underserved, underrepresented backgrounds. Through engaging with new people and cultures overseas, diverse students can come to better understand themselves and experience the affirming reality of global human interconnectedness. We believe that increasing student diversity in international education benefits not only the students who go abroad but the communities they join, our society, and the world at large.
As an international organization dedicated to global education, CEA encourages the appreciation of diversity to cultivate respect, inclusion, and academic excellence. We advocate for all members of our community to “Embrace Differences,” one of our core values.

We want to show our students and university partners we care about diversity where it counts: through funding. That's why we created the CEA Shop. When students and their families purchase our destination-specific products, the profits go toward funding CEA's Diversity Scholarship. Our t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, and tote bags feature beautifully illustrated designs for each of our destinations that can serve as a long-time reminder of a student's time abroad. The CEA Shop gives our students the opportunity to help their peers go abroad, tapping into their desire to make meaningful contributions to their communities and the world.
Join us in our commitment to increasing student diversity abroad.
