Abstract

This study seeks to better understand the potential relationship between housing offered to sojourners while enrolled in study abroad programs and their development of cultural intelligence. Former sojourners of study abroad programs offered by one private Northwest university were the participants for this study (n = 74). This study issued the Cultural Intelligence Scale (CQS) to assess participants self-identified cultural intelligence compared to the housing of their study abroad program. Participants completed the Likert scale CQS before answering qualitative questions regarding the program they were enrolled in and their housing during their sojourn. This study found no statistically significant results between cultural intelligence and the housing of sojourners while abroad.
