Did your participation in study abroad enhance your professional career and/or worldview; and if so, how?: "Yes.

To this day (16 yrs into my career), it has been the most cherished teaching experience I have had. I have written a book on my class, one paper published, have another in review, and started a website--all motivated by my study abroad experience.."
