The Institution of International Education recently published its Open Doors 2016 report, which saw Miami (OH) University ranked number one in the U.S. in public doctoral universities for the participation of undergraduate students in study abroad programs.

The university currently has 49.1 percent of its students study abroad before graduation. The figured from the report are based on the 2014-15 academic year.

“Everyone at Miami should be extraordinarily proud of this No. 1 ranking for study abroad participation among public universities,” Cheryl Young, associate provost, Global Initiatives, said. “This accomplishment illustrates the deep commitment to a globally focused education for our students at a time when cultivating a global perspective and strengthening our connections is more important than ever.”

Miami was also included at number 17 on the list for its undergraduate study abroad participation, tying them with Boston University. This list was comprised of public and private universities that offer doctorates.

The list ranks Miami at number 22 for actual number of students, including undergraduate and graduate students, who participate in the study abroad program. During the 2014-15 academic year, Miami had 2,046 students studying abroad.
