About Us

Our Mission Statement

Working with global partners, our mission is to provide academically sound, culturally immersive, and linguistically rigorous study-abroad programs, structured with appropriate support, that challenge students to acquire and employ knowledge in new contexts and to expand their perspectives on the world and their own place in it.

Our Staff

NEW: Our physical office is currently closed, but our staff is available via email, phone, and virtual advising appointments (see below for scheduling). Please note: students should only plan to request advising appointments once they have completed the "Study Abroad First Steps" requirement.
