Even though students are not able to travel during this time, you can still engage with new cultures virtually.
Students may choose to participate in virtual study abroad opportunities offered by Other SUNY campuses, but they can not concurrently enroll in an Other SUNY program and in regular UB courses in either the winter session or the semester. Students can not concurrently enroll in an Other SUNY and a UB study abroad opportunity in the semester.
Interested UB students are encouraged to make an appointment with Karen Joppe to discuss participation in a virtual program. Karen Joppe can be reached by email email@example.com or you may schedule an appointment via Navigate: Schedule an Appointment.

The Brockport Global Citizenship Virtual Exchange Programs were modeled after the SUNY Coil Global Commons program. In these Global Citizenship Virtual Exchange Programs, students will contribute to global sustainability by completing a project in small groups, in partnership with community based and nonprofit organizations around the world. Students will gain skills in intercultural communications and collaboration by completing a project for one of these partner organizations through the framework of the United Nations Sustainability Goals. Partner organizations around the world will work with groups of students to develop these stories and receive use of the final products.
