United States community college students face numerous barriers both externally and internally that impede overall success. There are noted interventions that when employed by the college, have a greater chance of leading students to increased persistence (finishing the term) and completion (finishing their academic/professional program). Education abroad is one such intervention. This article examines the California Community College Student Outcomes Abroad research project that is the first such research project to show that community colleges that intentionally promote education abroad, also directly influence student success paths.
