Passport to the World
The college offers exciting international programming each academic year connecting A&S, the university, and the Commonwealth to the world. The Passport to the World Program enables the college to embark on year-long explorations of the culture and history of a particular region or country. The program engages our community in crucial global conversations, sparks an ongoing exchange of ideas, and promotes awareness of our collective similarities and differences. Public lectures and cultural events, coursework, exchanges, and travel all foster the creation of global awareness and participation. Students, faculty members, and alumni will also have unique opportunities to study aboard. International collaborations and exchanges will be facilitated through travel, faculty exchanges, and technology-mediated conferences and consultations.
During the inaugural year of this program, the college sponsored South Africa and Kentucky: Different Lands, Common Ground. Upcoming international programming will highlight China – with many more exciting options to come.
