While this is a gratifying number, we have pledged to increase that to 33% as part of the Institute of International Education’s Generation Study Abroad Commitment. 800 845 600 400 Photographs contributed by Kristen Egan, Danielle Gallagher, JMU University Photography Department, Thomas Lavenir, London Event Photography Company, Matt McCormick, Diana Meza, Lee Sternberger, Megan Tongen, and courtesy of ISSS, University of Malmö and University Unions Technology and Design staff. 200 0 2004-05 2005-06 2006-07 2007-08 2008-09 2009–10 2010-11 2011-12 2012-13 2013-14 The OIP collaborated with JMU’s Alumni Association to establish a chapter in London . In the fall, along with on-site faculty and staff and current Semester in London students, area alumni gathered to watch JMU’s Homecoming game (vs. William and Mary). Plans are already afoot to make this an annual event. Along with JMU’s Big Event effort in April, four of our European programs – London, Antwerp, Salamanca and our EUPS graduate program in Florence – participated in local community service projects. Each event was a great success, receiving press coverage and bringing students, staff, faculty and alums together with their neighbors.
