Institute urging students to study abroad

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Institute of International Education says it wants to see more U.S. students study abroad in the next four years.

The new campaign is expected to be announced Monday.

In order to reach that goal the organization is focusing on recruiting more low-income students and others who have not participated in high numbers in the past.

About 160 colleges and universities are already committing to the initiative.

The group says hundreds of thousands more international students annually come to the U.S.

Only 10-percent of U.S. students participate in some sort of study-abroad program.
