Study Abroad Participant

"My decision to study abroad in Mexico and Spain with UMKC was, perhaps, the single most important decision that I made during my college career.  Not only did my experiences abroad both broaden my cultural horizons and allow me to perfect my language capabilities, but they propelled me to new heights in my career as a lawyer and continue to be a point of pride in my own personal and professional development."

Joseph Salazar

UMKC Political Science & English Major

Studied in Russia - Fall 2012

"Studying abroad changed what I thought about Russia, but it also changed what Russians thought about America."
