Consistent with the Tourism Education Futures Initiative (TEFI) values, universities need to adequately prepare their graduates with the skills and knowledge needed in a global society. Correspondingly, U.S. universities have prioritized the development of study abroad to foster a global mindset. We offer that short-term, experiential educational travel programs provide a critical platform to foster global citizenship when coupled with sound pedagogy. Underpinned by a modified Value-Belief-Norm (VBN) framework, empirical evidence showcases global citizenship as a "value-added" learning outcome of educational travel. Moving forward, an updated model is needed to understand the juncture where students' perspectives shift and new meanings are made. Copyright © Taylor & Francis.
