SUNY is proud to partner with Governor Andrew Cuomo to offer students a unique and
rewarding service learning opportunity to support his NY Stands with Puerto Rico Recovery and Rebuilding Initiative. New York State is mobilizing students from SUNY and CUNY to work through non-profit
organizations that are aiding in the reconstruction and revitalization efforts of
communities across the island damaged by hurricanes Irma and Maria.
The Suffolk County Community College Study Abroad Program is committed to providing
educational opportunities globally to students who are motivated to broaden their
worldview, acquire cross-cultural competencies and further their professional or academic
careers by becoming global learners.
Study Abroad Program offerings allow students to receive an immersive educational
experience in their subjects of choice abroad, meet their peers from other countries,
experience different cultural contexts, languages and traditions, and learn how to
adapt to them. While studying in foreign countries, students also learn more about
themselves, their home country and culture through the lens of the global community.
More than 500 study abroad offerings are open to Suffolk County Community College
students through SUNY Study Abroad Consortium. Of those, study abroad programs in
Spain, Peru, St. Lucia and Italy are led by Suffolk County Community College faculty
and engage annually the most curious and forward thinking students at Suffolk.
A Study Abroad offers curricula-based credit-bearing opportunities to Suffolk and
SUNY students interested in becoming global learners. The Study Abroad Program offerings
focus on teaching students how to engage with local and global communities, provide
opportunities to develop critical thinking skills, and foster personal and academic
growth through disciplinary scholarship, language training, and cultural immersion.
