Welcome to Ripple Effects Season 4. You can and should study or volunteer abroad, there are compelling reasons to believe that you will be a valuable participant, and the process of making it happen is easier than you think.

That will be the message of this season, as we talk with guests from higher education, nonprofits as well as students and professionals like yourself. University study abroad programs are not the only option out there, there might be more links between ancient Japanese Buddhist temples and assistive technology than you think and if you are looking for an integrated inclusive education in Mongolia, you might want to ditch the city for the countryside. All that and more for this season of Ripple Effects.
