Domestic Study

welcome

The Engaged Learning Office offers academic Domestic Study opportunities. The goal of the program is to provide curricular travel experiences focused on global learning within U.S. states and territories.

Through global learning, students should:

  • Become informed, open-minded, and responsible people who are attentive to diversity across the spectrum of differences.
  • Seek to understand how their actions affect both local and global communities.
  • Address the world's most pressing and enduring issues collaboratively and equitably.

The AAC&U also states that: "while study abroad is an important educational experience that can foster the development of these desired learning outcomes and developmental skills, mindsets, and behaviors, so too are domestically based off-campus study programs."

Through domestic-based study, students have the opportunity to address these learning outcomes in an affordable, accessible manner, where the travel is shorter duration.

We are working on developing Domestic Study opportunities at this time. Check back for future updates!
