My philosophy is: Fail early, so you can eventually succeed.
The Global Engagement Office offers a range of exciting opportunities for global study, travel, and service.
We offer academic courses with travel components, language-immersion programs, service-learning opportunities, a school-to-school exchange program, and participation in Model United Nations international conferences.
Each program is designed to fully involve and challenge students to engage critically and develop new insights into the communities we visit and people we meet. Our programs deepen students’ appreciation of the historical, socio-economic, linguistic, and cultural challenges and opportunities of countries across the globe. Through these experiences, we encourage our students to be discerning and well grounded, and to act with humanity and purpose, to help prepare them to take on the demands of our globally interconnected world.
Participation in our international programs, which are selective, requires completion of a formal application process. There are additional travel costs for these programs. Announcements about specific programs offered in a given year will be made by the Global Engagement Office early in the spring semester. Contact the Global Engagement Office for detailed program and application information.
