The first students affected by its study abroad requirement are juniors this year and, of about 300, 95 percent have already studied abroad or are signed up for programs this summer or in the January term, said Daniel Norton, associate dean of the Office of International Studies. That leaves about 15 with whom the college is still working, Norton said, some of whom may be postponing their graduation until December 2010 for other reasons.

Two or three students petitioned for and were granted exemptions based on something documented, like a medical condition. Those granted exemptions still need to complete an off-campus experience through the career development office, Norton said.
In terms of practical considerations, Goucher provides a $1,200 voucher to help students pay for study abroad. Another obstacle the college has run into, aside from financial ones, is how to help students with low grade point averages access study abroad, as many programs have minimum GPA requirements.
"We've learned a lot as we've implemented this and worked through those exceptional cases of students either with medical issues or financial issues," Norton said. "Certainly a student's financial situation shouldn't be a deterrent to them studying abroad, but how we navigate that has really been an ongoing development, as with students with lower GPAs, how we can work to ensure they have a good study abroad experience. It's developing enough programs for the students, with enough variety [in terms] of locations and program length."
At the same time, Norton said, "There have been some interesting changes where I think we're recruiting more students who are coming to Goucher because of our study abroad requirement.

Norton, director of the Office of International Programs (OIP), said the consortium did a lot of extensive work with the Middle East.Norton said OIP has not really worked with the consortium but would look forward if the two programs were able to find a common goal and work toward it.

"It is a good opportunity to expand our international incentives," Norton said.
