Global and Outdoor Education

My Global Link trip to Colombia was life-changing. It inspired me to make a conscious effort to travel in college through study abroad programs, fellowships, internships, teaching positions, and research with professors." –UPrep alum
Our Global and Outdoor Education office manages place-based, community-oriented, experiential learning opportunities. From Global Link and Semester Away to Snow School, every program is designed to enrich the UPrep experience. Students step out of their comfort zone to have transformative experiences, foster meaningful relationships, and engage with new communities and environments with respect, responsibility, and integrity.
Global Link and Outdoor Education courses earn academic credit, but winter break, spring break, and weekend programs do not earn academic credit. Students also earn academic credit for approved Semester Away programs.
