Open Doors 2016 (based on 2014-15 participation)

The 2016 Institute of International Education Open Doors Report published in November 2016 ranked St. Olaf #1 among baccalaureate institutions (for the 8th year in a row) for total number of study abroad students with 653 participants.  Note that the Open Doors Report excludes international student participants and participants in domestic off-campus study programs, so total participation as measured by IIE is lower.
