When Addam and Jane Stine started Loop Abroad in 2009, they wanted to bring students who love animals on international adventures to see the world and experience animal care and conservation in a new way. They knew Chiang Mai, Thailand was the perfect place to start. They partnered with local organizations already making a positive impact to offer the first Loop Abroad program to a wonderful group of 9 American high school students. In the next few years, programs grew with more focus on veterinary education, animal science, and service. Students learned key skills they would need to make an impact at home and abroad. In 2013, responding to student requests, Loop Abroad opened its veterinary service programs to college students for the first time. The focus was still on partnering with world-class conservationists and educators and working with local conservation organizations to create unforgettable learning and service opportunities. After years of development, Loop Abroad offered its first 14-week Veterinary Semester Abroad in Fall 2016. The semester includes 20 credits of hands-on courses -- from small animal surgery-room skills to elephant medicine and coral reef conservation. It’s a life-changing adventure from forested mountains to island reefs during which students learn hands-on about veterinary medicine and animal conservation. In the summer of 2017, Loop Abroad began expanding around the world. Dozens of passionate alumni and many new recruits were the inaugural season of our Veterinary Service South Africa program. Now Loop Abroad is also in Australia, South America, and the Amazon and Galapagos, but each group is small and each program focuses on sharing veterinary and conservation knowledge across cultures and supporting local conservation projects in their efforts. Loop Abroad continues to expand our reach while holding onto our founding values, allowing us to consistently be ranked as one of the best veterinary programs for study abroad. We now proudly offer a wide-range of travel and study experiences for students who share our commitment to animal welfare and respect for all living things. Loop Abroad is a Certifying Organization for the Presidential Service Award. Loop Abroad is also a member of the Forum on Education Abroad, which develops Standards of Good Practice for study abroad providers. We seek to follow the Standards of Good Practice in everything we do in pursuit of our educational mission. We are proud to have the University of Findlay as our School of Record.
