Abstract

Community colleges have an imperative to attend to building the global citizen (Raby and Tarrow 1996) as do all institutions of higher education. Despite the fact that community college students now comprise approximately half of the American higher education student population, only about 1 % of the American students engaged in study abroad are from community colleges (Institute of International Education Studies 2014). The reasons attributed to this are many, and they mainly revolve around the distinct characteristics and needs of the typical community college student demographic.
