As the study abroad field continues to grapple with major travel restrictions, how can institutions provide an authentic global experience for their students? One answer is through domestic forms of global engagement and “study away” programs, which are rapidly expanding as experiences closer to home enhance opportunities for students to develop global capacities throughout their curricular experiences, near campus, domestically, and internationally. Collectively, these offer more students the opportunity to learn about cultures beyond the borders of their campus. Through these programs, students learn about themselves, the diversity of American experiences, as well as their place in the world.
Leading the discussion on current topics in the field of domestic experiential learning and sharing cases studies from their campuses are Eric Hartman, PaCIE Board Member and Executive Director for the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship at Haverford College, Lisa Miller, Director of Global Insight Expeditions, TuckGO at the Dartmouth Tuck School of Business and Bradley Feuling, Chairman/CEO of The AmeriCenter.
