Going Places





Our vision is that every Honors scholar should be able to study for a semester abroad or go on a faculty-led international course at least once. We live in a global community; recognizing this and being part of that community are fundamental first steps to full engagement. We work with our Study Abroad Office to facilitate semesters abroad or develop courses, with no fewer than 9 being led from Honors in 2019. Nothing opens your mind like an international experience!
