In an effort to include a global perspective to our Core curriculum and allow our first year students to come to experience our international programs, we launched, in the Fall 2009 semester, our ICS Freshman Passport Program.
The program invites our first year students to add a 2-week international experience to an ICS Core course. The 2-weeks are offered either immediately before or after the traditional Fall or Spring semester.
The same group of students taking part in the international experience attend class with the same instructor during the academic year, forming a learning community with a distinct bond and goal. The international experience may include daily classes, a servant leadership/transition component, afternoon guided walking tours, day trips, and Academic Service Learning work in a local soup kitchen.
For more information and details on this unique program, see the Office of Global Studies website.
