This video embodies what we are aiming to do at the Center for International Studies. Through education and travel we can open our eyes to a world we otherwise couldn't see. It is not about the destination, it is about what you gain along the way and how you apply it to benefit others. Our students are the generation with the potential to change the world.
The Center for International Studies is devoted to expanding knowledge and understanding about people and culture. Since its creation, our Center has supported and encouraged students to become internationally minded through different programs such as the Kenneth and Verena Wilson Fellowship, and the Helen Ratliff Cleaves Memorial Fellowship.
International Studies majors have taken the lead in becoming immersed in true international atmospheres. Our students have volunteered, interned, and studied in many countries around the world. Cambodia, Germany, the Netherlands, China, Honduras, Syria, Spain, and Austria are only a few of the places which have provided our students with a broader and clear view of the current dynamics of the world.
