Around the world, educational institutions use virtual exchange (VE) to cultivate cross-cultural relationships and competencies for students. In the face of covid-19 and the multitude of challenges it poses to universities worldwide, VE has proven itself a valuable, sustainable, and accessible global learning tool. VE enables students to interdependently learn with peers in other countries through meaningful, facilated, and collaborative online experience that are low-cost, widely accessible, and scalable. VE provides opportunities for underserved students to participate in International programs and gain access to global educational experiences.

Fun and engaging virtual exchange curriculum not only equalizes global opportunities, but it has kept students engaged and interested during a critical time.
