Northeastern University has committed to increase the number of students studying in Latin America and the Caribbean by developing the capacity of their three partner institutions to receive larger numbers of students. By increasing the number of English language courses, aligning student demand with faculty interest, and facilitating credit transfer, these partner Universities will be able to attract more students seeking a career-focused global education. To promote student exchanges, the program will also create a peer-advising network of virtual embassies linked to existing EducationUSA advising centers.
