GEO programs and students have been prominently featured in the news as of late.

- GEO is partnering with Diversity Abroad to help raise the number of underrepresented students going abroad. To this end, GEO recently held a student panel discussion on race and identity abroad. The event–titled “Living Abroad in Your Skin”– is now garnering national recognition.
- Christian Hartwell, a summer 2016 Cross-Border Interviewing and Story Development in Rosario program participant, wrote a feature on the Madres De La Plaza De Mayo appearing in the UTNE Reader.
