Rustic Pathways was featured in USA Today. Rustic CEO Chris Stakich said having a global perspective is now more important than ever for high school and college students.
“Look at the speed at which things are changing, from climate change to income disparity to politics to technology,” he says. “The reality is that the world students will enter is dramatically different than it was even 10 years ago. International travel programs put students in a situation that is uncommon and uncomfortable. The self-awareness they gain, the intercultural intelligence, the critical thinking and humility—these are skill sets that companies are looking for.”
