Cuts and Consolidation: The 1970s

After the rapid expansion of the 1960s, the gloomier economic situation in the 1970s resulted in a period of consolidation, reorganization and scrutiny for UCEAP. The focus was on improving and expanding programs in countries where UCEAP already had a presence, rather than expanding farther around the world.

1971:

A total of 542 students studied abroad through UCEAP during the 1971-72 academic year;

UCEAP was lauded as “one of the very best overseas programs” by a faculty member of the Western Association of Colleges and Universities.

1973:

Committees were formed to evaluate the Study Centers in Bordeaux, France, and Padua, Italy. This review process continued for other Study Centers through the 1970s.

1976:

UCEAP’s Beirut program was terminated because of civil unrest in Lebanon.  

1978:

A total of 679 UC students studied abroad during the 1978-79 academic year.

Eleven UC students studying in Hong Kong visited China, a rare priviledge at the time​.
