Study abroad goes virtual, with UB leading the way

Published April 13, 2020


CNBC interviewed Mara Huber, associate dean of undergraduate research and experiential learning, in an article about how universities are seeking alternative ways to study abroad, from home, during the COVID-19 situation. This fall, UB’s annual trip to Tanzania to study women’s empowerment will take place in a virtual setting. Huber said, “Universities have relationships with communities all around the world, and I think it’s time to use technology to give students access to these experiences.”
