Abstract

This pilot study’s driving force is to contribute to the student travel/study abroad literature using a new framework to gauge the effect travel has on knowledge of global issues. The United Nations created a list of sustainable development goals meant to rectify pressing issues in the United States and abroad. The goals have been separated into the categories of ending poverty, ensuring prosperity for all, and protecting the planet. Using them as the framework for a quantitative study, data were collected from college-level students around South Carolina.
