An international experience within the Department of Learning and Teaching (L&T) is defined as an opportunity for students to interact with individuals and/or institutions from a nation outside the U.S. in a manner that supports their personal and professional growth, nurtures cultural understanding, and prepares students to interact with and effectively serve diverse communities in a professional capacity.
Through this experience, it is hoped that students will:
- Develop a deeper understanding of another culture
- Appreciate its differences and similarities
- Consider its gifts and challenges
- Understand the educational and practical implications of cultural diversity and globalization issues
